but of course the world ain't me

and when you get up
look at the cash on hand
a child at home
the sun pouring like syrup
into the writing room
the forgotten wounds of the past
that have scarred over
the silver bullets of the clouds
ripping out of the blue gun of sky
these are the only forms of revenue
I deal in
but of course
the world ain't me

and when you get up
give praise for the moss roses
and the flailing arms of the Petunias
as they give birth again
from the dying dregs of their bodies
give praise for the sun basking
like a cat in a basket
give praise for the magpie
policing his precinct
and the hollow reeds of the grasses
as they flute their songs
but of course     the world ain't me

and when you get up
forget about the superstars
and the martyrs dancing to the tune
of politics and power 
instead stretch out your arms
that aren't being crucified
and take out the pins from your body
smile and understand that this is life
the good and the bad
we're here for it all   and don't wait
to live your life     
but of course
the world ain't me
