IN ARROWHEAD

there’s a message from
the mystic east
hidden in the rising yeast
that separates the crust
from the bread

here comes Gretel
with her pedal
to the metal
on the trail
where the
breadcrumbs led

just remember
what the tabloid said
about the Jesus-egg
that bled

in Arrowhead…

so close to the wire
that you never
seem to tire
but now you’re
feelng like a
cheap retread

but your luck can’t fail
when you’re working
for scale
on the skin
that the snake
won’t shed

angels pray
my soul to keep
never did find
that missing sleep
so much to do
when you’re dead

just remember
what the tabloid said
about the jesus-egg
that bled

In Arrowhead

you’re the one who
warned the one
who refused to genuflect
to the cut-rate spokesman
of the Great Disconnect
who commands all to embrace
what they felt they must reject
and leave a ghost in the machine
that they cannot now detect

just remember
what the tabloid said
about the jesus-egg
in Arrowhead…

Watchers in the tower
were chargin’ by the hour
they came on strong
then turned & fled

when they re-collect the bets
I’ll pay, but not quite yet
there’s a loophole
where the points
don’t spread

they stopped to praise the fire
and make additions to the pyre
at the burning of the
Rosebud Sled

just remember
what the tabloid said
about the Jesus-egg
that bled

in Arrowhead…
