Ridin’ in Style

(Here’s a beauty by my friend David Belmont)

i went down by the riverside the other day
lookin’ for the sword and shield
i had laid down there
some time ago

couldn’t find ‘em

in their place was a sign 

moved to the museum of antiquity
alongside some worthless warheads 

there’s a line
in bob dylan’s
talking world war III blues

he’s ridin’ down 42nd Street 
in his cadillac

nice car to drive
after a war


after
                        a
                                                war
that’s a dream
i’d love to
live in
