  1. An old Chinese woman
    Stands in a field
    On the lunatic edge of town
    Where drinkers gather to drink

    And woman of ill repute
    Play their games
    With the passing drunks
    Men ready for a night of passion

    She is holding a tea pot
    And proclaims
    That the pot contains
    A genie

    That will grant the new owner
    Three wishes
    She had to sell the pot
    Because her wishes came true
    And she smiles
    And laughs insanely
    The laughter dies
    And she implores people

    To buy her tea pot
    And put her out of misery
    Just buy my pot
    And your dreams will come true

    Be careful dear thought
    Remember all magic
    Comes with a price
    A terrible price

  2. I no longer hear daffodils
    swaying in the field.
    No longer hear them whisper harmonies
    upon my blissful slumber.

    No petals on the midnight breeze,
    the scent to sooth my quake.
    A cool caress of clementine,
    honey for my embrace.

    The faceless one has arisen,
    burnished all in bronze.
    Encircled in plumes of tar,
    consumption in its wake.

    A lone constitution stands
    Guardian of the spark,
    that rises from upturned palm
    a spectre in oxford blue.

    My essence has deviated,
    adrift in folds of mist.
    Primed for its revival
    upon the palm of my constitution!
