Life

Because when life is a hurricane love is a breeze


I choked down tap water while they drank gasoline

Veterans cough up change to feed the machine

Spinning tires cut the tar a deeper shade of black

While the eye of the needle watches the straw break the camel’s back

We danced to the beat of a shotguns blast

We shook up the odds till the die was cast

Sang the anthem of plague till the alcoholic swallowed his disease

Because when life is a hurricane love is a breeze
