Gold Coast

The cities fill with flaxen swine
The pitiful divine.
You can take this castle home tonight
If your devils will co-sign.
Go relieve your pain the even way
A mistress on your dime.
There ain’t no shame, your wife she lays
In his bed all the time,
Pouring wine. Roaring wild and mighty
Like a lion.
The scales can only tip one way
So long, the links unbind.
The blood line moneys held in trust
Decline! Decline! Decline!
Till all that air frothed in your brain
Will lift you toward the sky.
Now take your final pennies
ask a lemming how to fly.
Death defy. Freestyle, tandem trial
Buy a kite, now hold on tight!

Set the coast on fire.
Fly higher. Fly higher.
And buy a kite.

The Gold Coast will fall off the edge of the earth.
A populace of proper etiquettes
With spotless slabs of skin
Dressing their synthetic flesh
and drab conversations, like
“O blessed be thy SUV!
O Holy Opulence!”
But soon you’ll see
Your immunity
Revert to malcontent.
And send you off to drift.
You better wave down a kite and try and buy yourself a lift.
Set the coast on fire.
Fly higher. Fly higher.
And buy a kite.
