Free-Falling

I’m losing my mind.

Don’t you understand?

I’m desperately reaching out for your hand.

Bring out the coffin, let the workers come. 

Let politicians circle, moaning overhead 
confessing on the airwaves, He Is RED, 
Put nooses round the white necks of the bosses, 
Let the riot policemen carry their own crosses.
