ROSE    PARADE



THEY ASKED  ME TO COME DOWN AND WATCH THE PARADE
AND MARCH DOWN THE STREET LIKE A  DURACELL BUNNY
WITH A WINK AND A WAVE FROM THE CAVALCADE
THROWING OUT CANDY THAT LOOKS LIKE MONEY
TO PEOPLE PASSING BY THAT ALL SEEM TO BE GOING THE
OTHER WAY
SAID WON'T YOU FOLLOW ME DOWN TO A ROSE PARADE?
TRIPPED OVER A DOG IN A CHOKE CHAIN COLLAR
PEOPLE WERE SHOUTING AND PUSHING AND SAYING
AND WHEN I TRADED A SMOKE FOR A FOOD STAMP DOLLAR
A RIDICULOUS MARCHING BAND STARTED PLAYING
AND GOT ME SINGING ALONG WITH SOME HALF-HEARTED
VICTORY SONG
WON'T YOU FOLLOW ME DOWN TO A ROSE PARADE?
THE TRUMPET HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN DRINKING
CAUSE HE'S FUCKING UP EVEN THE SIMPLEST LINES
I'D SAY IT'S A SIGHT THAT'S QUITE WORTH SEEING
IT'S JUST THAT EVERYONES INTEREST IS STRONGER THAN MINE
AND WHEN THEY CLEAN THE STREETS I'LL BE THE ONLY SHIT
THAT'S LEFT BEHIND
WON'T YOU FOLLOW ME DOWN TO A ROSE PARADE?
