CAT'S CRADLE

©2006 Euphonic Dissonance | Brian Copeland

Thousands of years or more
Waving tangles of string in
Children’s faces

A bunch of X’s between
Somebody’s hands
No wonder children grow
Up crazy

And suicide it solves so much
For so many
She’s laughing
I’m not quick enough to answer
Touched the cold hard ground
Placed her finger to her lips
And died
And I cried

All the earths a sheet of blue
White pearl
The sky fills with worms
The sun
Yes the sun
It’s a sickly yellow ball
It’s just there
Tiny and cruel

Where’s the cat?
Where’s the cradle?
See the cat?
See the cradle?
Watch the cat.
Watch the cradle.
No damn cat.
No damn cradle.
