The Blues

The blues are borne of darkness
Colourless night
Take flight, owl of Minerva
Serve the dying with fervour
Unnerve sleepless warden of
this thin sliver of light

Keep close the candle
Pan-handling vandal
The shriek, the squeal
The crass, the genteel
The soul that can’t feel
as it’s torn through the mangle

You once torn, once dismissed
With a flick of the wrist
can walk tall, write The Wall
draw St Peter from Saul
Lay waste to them all
with a pen and a fist
