Country Monkey Blues

by richardjuckes

I got in touch with an old friend because I felt some worry for her
during the fires in the summer.
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!

She wrote back to say she was OK and had known something was about
to happen because she was reading stuff from Operation Terra.
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!

After a week of wondering what on earth to say to her I asked, I
hoped in a friendly chatty sorta way, if that was not a suicide
cult like Heavan’s Gate.
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!

She said it wasn’t, but those that knew …
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!

With Bill Haley we’ll be bopping
Unless we stop for shopping
We’ve got too much bloody trouble
So we choose the body double
To be or … there’s a third way!
Lishen caresfilly what de bird say
Solipsistic ego?
In that whale-back’d cloud we’ll go!
A tautololololological nonsense
To ease the coward conscience.
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!

Ophelia! Don’t go, Ophelia …
With a rann again, runaway, sing it to the rally, O!
