Horizontal Lines


You can tell

By the horizontal lines

Across your fingernails,

That the freight trains

Have run off the rails,

That's what happens

When death blows a gale,

There's always chaos

Without fail,

The new moon's

Thrown into gaol

For been to frail,

And the night sky

Turns ghostly pale.
