Trails of Blood

from Roger White by Jon Hughes

/

lyrics

Wolves in Taksim Square
Saw their wounded prey
Lumbering through.
Circled and pounced upon
And took more than they knew.

Spent your swollen knees
Chasing your stolen notebook,
With a picture from your past.
And the man in that photograph
Could have won it back.

Found you underfoot
On horseback sitting tall–
Dissolving in blue sky–
Looking so self-assured;
Young and full of pride.

All these trails of blood
Stagger through these streets,
Drip down and osmose;
And I know if I followed them
I'd find you hobbling home.
