Down, down, down

The sun goes down

The night comes down

Laid down

As I lay down

A boy in the yard

I try hard to sleep

And try not to think

Of the other afoot

With plans of a crook

To ruin my shelter

And send helter skelter

A boy in the yard


Cycling on the highway

Turn off to the side road

Against what they all told

That there would not be a place

To which one could leave the race

And to just be

Then to lay down


A youth by the road

Doing what he said

And pausing in bed

Amidst all the snow

Hoping not to show

The late rural drivers

A character diverse

As to set out to walk

In snow white as chalk

Only to lay down

So much on the ground

A youth by the road


What's the diff'

Between Abram and Abraham

Seems to me one thicket-ed ram

Whether my talent, my wealth or my life

Isaac it, I sac' it to my wife !
