The trawlers haul us home, dear.

It is time for another round of iPod Magnetic Poetry.

Refugee, rain, one hand come down between us,
Say a prayer to the man above,
And oxidation is the compromise you own.

And she smiled as she passed me by--
Yes, I know the ways and means I are, Ma,
I've been dropping beats since Back in Black.

I was happy, now I'm walking on the water
(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Some days are better than others--

I would go out tonight
Oh, boo, what can I do?
Love other people? But I don't know their names.

But all the news reports recommended that I stay indoors--
I laughed as I said it

Yes, no, maybe is all I need to hear from you.
To hide a sadder tale,
I want to die (come see paradise).
We open up unfinished parts--
Do you want to go to the seaside?
(You were there.)
Why do the heathens rage behind the firehouse?

. . . take what you know,
I don't get where you're coming from.

All the leaves
I will sing, sing a new song.
The trawlers haul us home, dear.
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love,
For only the loss of you
