Beg, Steal or Borrow
written by Halfblind Henry

We´ve been walking
streets of pity
that never
change their names
We´ve been talking
to people in the city
hooked on games

We´ve been riding
on a slow train
between stations
out of bounds
They saw us striding
along the slow lane
furloughed patients
coming round

Stripped of all virtue
stripped of all shame
Love, we´re getting ready
to call you
by your name

Realms of rapture
realms of glory
hungry pilgrims
on the run
It´s not captured
in the story
but they killed them
one by one

Beg, steal and borrow
to keep from starving
a coin to toss
is all that´s mine
This time tomorrow
my little darling
we will cross
the borderline


Let us know your name
