No sky in the sky,
No whiteness in the moon
No fire in the sun
No wetness in water
No air in the air
No leaves in the trees
No worm in upturned stones
No green in the grass
No scent in the flowers
No marrow in the bones
No blood in the heart
No money in the money
No earth in the earth
The birds can’t stop tweeting
the ace of spades is everywhere.
Cars won’t start—batteries are dead.
The bars are overcrowded, everyone singing,
Roll out the barrel and we’ll have a barrel of fun!
Nobody’s brother can now spare a dime.
Your eyes will soon fall out from crying.
Laugh and the world laughs with you—
cry, and you cry alone.
If you blow your brains out,
you’re sure to make a mess.
Be considerate.
