Brass Ring

Ricardo Zegri 2005


Rocking horse suicide

It’s easier when you’re there

Rubber band homicide

It’s been strangling your hair


A tortoise on his back

Well he can’t get up alone

The sun has turned him black

Close his eyes and dream of home



You’re Alone

Your time has come

Rent to own


Push away from the table

Dinner plate has gone cold

Should have dined when you were able

Now it’s covered with mold


Devil’s laughing in his sleeve

As you pack up your things

Will you miss what you leave?

That depends on what you bring



Memories are landmines

The road is littered with bone

Stand still or walk the line

This life is rent to own
