silly soldier-boy

  • slash the drum-skin, smash the sticks
    toy tin soldier march far too quick;
    clockwork spring-coil run right down;
    hurrah – now call out those crazy clowns!

    let the spring slack, dispense turn-key
    jack-in-box aptly acts out me –
    refuse command of circus master,
    wary angels save grave disaster.

    he take on tiger, and elephant too
    silly soldier boy just hasn’t clue;
    audience demand, show goes on
    – sand or stone, which built upon?

    duty done, now out of commission,
    cardboard box best type of prison:
    – up to attic, long time to come –
    soldier, listen to different drum…
