Duncan Believed In The Green Pipe

-

Duncan believed in the green pipe

A pipe that has yet to deceive him

But we stress "yet"

For a woman in his life

__is married to another man

And Duncan is only a boy

Born

__to be destroyed

-

Puppet believed in the green dy

A dy that would transform his outfit

__into a pistachio colored dream

But the dy didn't stay on

So we bought him real green pants

But

__to be worn with purple

____and not khaki

-

And Dun believed in a green life

A life full of grass and leaves

Money for himself

But no love-life

Thee integrity found

__in staying intact with his new found senses

____allured him

______and made him forget his intention

-

Me? I believe in the green times

The times when pieces of paper

__meant for our needs would grow

So we planted trees

__hoping money would grow

But as it grew and grew

__more and more emergencies started to happen

And now we struggle to keep what's green
