SUDDENLY SOMETHING Have you ever spent a night in a six by ten foot cell? Well that’s where my delusions dwell And no one with a prescription pad will write for a junkie born and bred Did you ever wish more earth dwellers would all suddenly be dead? Look, there’s a pretty little miss, oh it’s daddy’s little girl She dances on my feet when she starts to whirl I told her to hold down her pleated skirt when she begins to twirl My little girl with a smile and every tooth a pearl In silent supplication I’d sneak up to hear her prayer for that eve I just wanted to hear daddy’s little girl pray and then I would leave First she blessed the Almighty, his spirit and his soul Making prayers come true for all her sole and only goal And suddenly you feel not anger but sense the liquidation of fear And what do you detect in the air, as her lips grow near? Walking towards her is a man carrying too heavy a load Yes, I’m scared s**tless that this fellow is going to explode It could be a league of angels advising her on the right thing to do Or sprites to make all things look brand new It might be little singing stars from above came they for her and you As you beg the soul of an errant and off key dove please not to coo She looks completely comfortable in a cloak of camel hair and cashmere I’d trade anything if her troubles she’d never have to bear Whatever happens next is only through fate to be willed And if you listen closely one can hear the air being stilled Alas she grows nigh and you can see it through your third eye So you lurk behind a tree on a mission much as a spy Because you are bent on depriving her of any depravity And to hear from her loquacious lips “Daddy, let’s have some tea” So when I first talked about being caged in a cell if asked for the truth the story would be difficult to tell Because each eye a gem, each tooth a pearl So tell me sweetheart, are you still daddy’s little girl? © 2011.……Phreepoetree ~free cee!~
