Night of the Lotus Eaters

sapped & stupid

I lie upon the stones and I swoons

the darling little dandelions have done their thing

& changed from suns into moons

the dragons roam the shopping malls

I hear theyre gonna eat our guts

if I had the strength I might pick up my sword

& make some attempt to resist

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

grab yr sap & yr heaters

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

on the night of the lotus eaters

mmmmmmmm don’t you love my baby

mmmmmmmm & don’t you love my baby anymore

they gilded my scales/ they fish-bowled me

& they toured me round the old aquariums

they come in their hordes to tap at the glass

the philistines and barbarians

I like

floating

here (it’s nice)

theyve hung seaweed round my hips

& I do the

<<hula>>

for the hungry ones

& the lames all throw me tips

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

grab yr sap & yr heaters

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

on the night of the lotus eaters

mmmmmmmm don’t you love my baby

mmmmmmmm & don’t you love my baby anymore

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

from our catastrophic leaders

get ready to shield yourself!!!!!!!!!

grab yr sap & yr heaters

on the night of the lotus eaters

now hit the streets!!!!!!!

Now

HIT

the

streets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
