Brief Nights of Madness

The situation ain't real
Like a world ending in pain
Cataclysmic in poetry
Like my great grandmother in 1925
What is the movie they're watching?
Chaplin or Lloyd or the twin Diablo?
There's a world alight like Watts
Magically, the end. Ha, ha, ha.
This is it. Foiled. Like a praying mantis.
Poised for the kill. A reader of the red.
The classic parabola. What's that?
Ho ho ho. The life of Reilly?
There's a world out there. Ask Mick Jones.
