Some Assorted Poetry...

This is a small collection of poetry which I felt like including on the site. Some of the poetry here was written by me, during and after a poetry class I took while in college. Some of the poetry here was written by friends and other people I know. Also included are lyrics to several songs which I like for one reason or another. Enjoy...

Baby Gotterdammerung

indentation spacer- Monster Magnet

I read a book today
It made me think of the life I led
It seemed so far away, but then
I wouldn't call it dead.
I see a name or two, and the ghosts
just start to roam.
I had 'em locked away, It seems
they've cut their own parole.

Now face the music, son
Some people live to remember when,
But you're no storage space
You've lived a dozen lives since then.
So what would Modok do,
if his memory got too full?
He'd find the powersource, and then he'd pick
what plugs to pull...

I looked in the mirror, and somebody blew up
I turned on my TV, and somebody blew up
I learned how to lie well, and somebody blew up
I learned how to live true, and somebody blew up

My brain was still today,
Just taking a little death.
Just like the doctors say:
I'll never get that kind of rest.
The movie's on again,
They've got me nullifying ghosts...
I'm better dead than red,
I guess I'll never get off the boat.

I looked in the mirror, and somebody blew up
I turned on my TV, and somebody blew up
I learned how to lie well, and somebody blew up
I learned how to live true, and somebody blew up
