Come Join

Come join our band
Of merry men
They hollered
Tempting with piles
Of brittle bones
And golden eggs
From the geese
They’d slaughtered

Come join our chorus
Of merry souls
They crowed
We’ve silver bullets
And one trick ponies
We’ve the answers
To the questions
You always wanted to ask

Come learn our language
Of righteous anger
They spat
We’ve the puzzle plot
The skeleton keys
To all the doors
Of all the houses
To everywhere

And the promises
Cascaded
Tumbled and fell
And the geese died out
The ponies fled
The keys rusted
And the houses
Oh the houses

Stayed full to bursting
With the lost and lonely
And those fearful
Of a world outside
With windows barred
And steps too steep
The answers lost
To questions never asked
