PIED PIPER WIND-CHIME
SING A SWEET SONG
MAKE A RHYME

hanging on the fence
wind shaking
my bones
waitin for
the mean man
to bore some holes
for tones

he the mean man
the bad man
the sand man
the stone man
with the cold
dead hands

he the man with the sly eyes
and the friendly smile
he the man you trust
til his blade burst
your heart apart

he don't want your life
he don't want your soul
he want the long bones
of your thighs
to make his flute
and play a song


Manuela Cardiga


From the libretto for
"Mama Cannibal's Blues"
Abbie's Lullaby
