lobster claws

lobster claws

gaping maws

make the boy

a hero


blind men star

near and far

blue eyes see

life clear-o


money leant

time not spent

count for less

than zero


circle round

up and down

play a tune

like nero


bide slow time

choose a rhyme

justice comes

the morrow


not to fear

death is near

says my dear

oh dear oh
