And with the first showers
Comes the kind of sadness
Which only half loved lovers
Can feel.

Just the brain
telling tales
we are helpless
to resist.

a spool of heart's thread
pulled taut just for you
tie a knot and watch it break

a man all a-rush...
he's not a man who can wait;
perhaps he should try

happy days are here
now go kill the messenger
'cause the beat's too much

Canoodling his significant other,
Our man Henry was loathe to discover:
The lube had run dry,
But rather than cry,
He decided to go get the butter.

quiet dawn's dim light
serenity at its best
sneaking up on you

You were just a somebody.
I don't know when I made sense of it all
but you suddenly became
the 
brightest star in the cosmos.

The Masked Pimpernel

There once was a bad neck romancer,
Who kissed like a drunk limbo dancer;
With his tongue in one ear,
And her nose in his rear,
'Twas a mystery no-one could answer.
