Senility (January 1999)

Stealing away in cold blood
having robbed me of all that I value
time hides his snickering smirk
behind an inscrutable mask

Having robbed me of all that I value
my best friend leaves the apartment
behind an inscrutable mask
of shame mixed with pity and anger

my best friend leaves the apartment
leaving my mind cluttered with thoughts
of shame mixed with pity and anger
I’ll kill the bastard if I see him again

Leaving my mind cluttered with thoughts
I stroll to the park down the block
“I’ll kill the bastard if I see him again,”
the old lady screams from the birdbath

I stroll to the park down the block
as I whistle a tune to dull my heartache
The old lady screams from the birdbath
All minds fly the coup, and mine’s next

As I whistle a tune to dull my heartache
time hides his snickering smirk
All minds fly the coup, and mine’s next
stealing away in cold blood
