The eighth day

On the eighth day God, after so much work,
to free tensions already showing,
said everything’s fine and it’s time to rest,
and left for a walk in a given space

Who would magine that the same God upon returning
would find everything in an infernal disorder
and that one more would be unemployed
at that rate annually growing without stopping

Since then, some has seen him
alone in the trafficed streets
He’s waiting patiently for someone
who’s at least calm
and able to converse

While all this is happening, the world spins round and round
without being able to stop
and here below some manage us as chess pieces
I’m not in the idiot’s class
that allowes you to convince
but I speak the truth
until a blind man can see it

If for a lack of occupation
or excessive solitude
God didn’t resist more
and left to another place
It would be our perdition
there would be no other remedy
but to adore Michael Jackson
Bill Clinton or Tarzan

It’s more difficult to be a king without a crown
than to be a more normal person
Poor God doesn’t appear in the magazines
nor is he a model or an artist or from a royal family

While all this is happening, the world spins round and round
without being able to stop
and here below some manage us as chess pieces
I’m not in the idiot’s class
that allowes you to convince
but I speak the truth
until a blind man can see it

 

Det nærmer seg til hun opptrer i Spektrum. Jeg gleder meg!
