the lord of love is looking for you
scanning the crowd like a hungry goat
horns of steel and hooves of stone
hand over hand up the thorny rope

Helen lied about the world
about right and true and civilized
and fighting fools

someday soon hope will arrive
pawing the air like a tiger cub
coat of sand and claws like tines
combing the sky ‘til the surface shines

we are a zoo of old and new

the teeth of fear
the eyes of doubt
the skin of lust
a roar of pain trapped in your mouth
chained in it’s cage

buried deep in a hole in the dirt
navel to knees is a small earthworm
wedged beneath all the weight of the world
frightened and shy but undeterred

we are a zoo of old and new
the line get lighter under the light of days past through
