an 80s poem for my brother

Once in a Lifetime

By Shalay for Russ

Hey you

are we comfortably numb

singing the practical song?

are you Tom Sawyer?

or a brick in the wall?

Am I a spirit in the material world,

Or am I a material girl?

We were moving in stereo

Then they blinded me with science,

and I ran

Now one of our submarines is missing.

There is radio silence on the airwaves.

You might think I am crazy


This is not a road to nowhere.

Take me to the river,

Switch off the mind and let the heart decide

Water is flowing underground

Once in a lifetime

Kyrie Eleison
