LAST DAY SHOES

In my last day shoes,

I sing, Monday morn blues,

Watching grey rainbows shine,

As silent silhouetted men dine.

 

Go to rocking day shows,

Wearing last night throws,

Walk down blank holy aisles,

Passing empty fake smiles.

 

Then on to the end, where I wait,

Among blackleg bends, as I lay in state,

To be put in the ground, to see my fate,

The final drop from that earthy sound.

 

The priest says amen, the people weep, goodbye,

Then go to sad midweek do’s,

All wearing those very black, last day shoes.
