The Sons of Sunday Headlines

Lady XYZ is walking east to west on
Tuesday for her second in the week;
And the church bell's ringing serotonin
For the others who can comprehend the street;
And her mother stands behind the smoky
Yellow shade of every window that she sees;
And out of all the figures of her spatial
Recognition she's the only memory;

I felt lost for her and now
I'm losing all my nerve.

Naked soldiers eulogised,
"The Sons of Sunday Headlines"
For the fourth day in the week;
And obituaries of the
Dead and dying architects are
Buried underneath;
Now the telephone is ringing--
Bad news on the interstate for given family--
And out of all the brothers and the
Sons of Sunday headlines I'm the
Only it could be;

I felt lost for them and now
I'm head beyond the bend...

I felt lost for them and now
I can't feel anything.
