The Joker Always Wins

from by Gabriel Oliveira



how are you doing today?
I found something -
and I thought I’d talk about it
an ocean, a garden:

to run a marathon
to run a marathon of faith
run with me
cheesy as can be

"what thing can give you the right to make me unhappy?”

aah, you forget where you are
so much terror in the world
there’s nowhere to hide
there’s everywhere to burn
like the friends I knew
like the ones that sang
to help us understand themselves -ourselves

run a marathon
that doesn’t end, baby
"I saw you crying the other day
and I didn’t know just what to say…"
oh run with me?
I’ll break my voice and all my instruments
if you can feel empathy
for someone on the other side of the world
they are there
