One More

A song based on an old poem of mine.

Time for one more,
Eyes are bright;
Wonder what’s
In store tonight

Told me often
That she might
Sail the coffin
To the light.

Raid the palace,
Do the rite
Raise a chalice
To the night.


Keel was missing
From the base;
Lean to kiss
Your utter grace.

Wind was lacking
Under grass;
Bar is packing,
Drain your glass.

Blood has dried
Around the cut;
Smile is wide
And reckless but

Time for one more:
I’ll go up
To the shore
And break the cup.



There’s only time for one more;
There’s always room for one more:
Come along.
