DIARY



No one to blame

Posted on: November 16th, 2016 by Jeff Thompson No Comments

There may not be a difference between hatred and fear
And it’s wise to listen, even when there’s nothing new to hear
Though you’ll feel your hands grow colder when the hungry ghosts draw near
Invite them in to join you
They’ll disappear

Dragonflies, humble pies
Fairy tales and spells
Yes we can, Peter Pan
Clap for Tinker Bell
We’re entranced by the performance of the drunken puppeteer
Just invite him in and ask his name.

Ego te absolve
There’s no one to blame.

They won’t tell us how this story ends for many, many years
Lucifer was going to spoil it, but they got him drunk on beer
And the hungry ghosts are everywhere, in fact they may be here
Invite them in to join you
They’ll disappear.

Ego te absolve
There’s no one to blame.
