End of the Pleasure Era

White cat Samantha at night

God’s courtesans have left us wanting
Eating clean’s the latest trope
The pleasure era cannot hear you
So there Miss Capable, try sleep

Eating clean’s the latest trope
He could be dead; you might have killed him
So there Miss Capable, try sleep
Your prayers were always missing keywords

He could be dead; you might have killed him
Geometry holds lengthy grudges
Your prayers were always missing keywords
It’s never over, that’s the joke

Geometry holds lengthy grudges
The white cat follows you around
It’s never over, that’s the joke

The white cat follows you around
God’s courtesans have left us wanting
Time to clear your browser’s history
The pleasure era cannot hear you.

Jerusalem

Graceless

Driving without headlights or a map
With fuel enough to get there but not back

Siphoned dry; reduced to petty theft
This is the desert at its most bereft

The answering of prayers with one word: ‘soon’
Then told to make the most of making do

Because it’s one thing to make art from paint
Another to pry beauty from constraint

But I suppose that’s what is meant by ‘faith’
Graceless but for courage to create.
