We are happy in this place
Let us be and leave us.
The floor may be dirty
But our hands stayed clean,
Mister, have you a light?
We drink our water straight from the tap
We tie ribbons in our hair
We are watchers.
Or we had a job, maybe lost it,
Sir, we forgot.
There are excuses
Pretty little silver charms
Dangling from a chain –
Which one will you go for?
Which one fits you best?
Inside his coat pockets’ an arsonist,
She’s got a kelpto hidden away
In a pair of jeans somewhere.
Choose us
We’ve already chosen you.
