Stand and Deliver

26 02 2010

the red carpet gets pulled from under your feet
I remember a bonanza of banana peels
and broken high heels
all balance is lost

and the cost of doing business
gets too high on it’s own gasses
and you think of making passes at telemarketers
and meter readers

Promises implied but not stated.
leaves the back door open and then
there’s always the return and refund game
but I prefer smash and grab

From now on, I’m going to be a highwayman, a bandit
what I want won’t ask for, but demand it
then be gone before you see my face
I’ll have your purse, you’ll have my grace
