soft rock ballad

soft rock ballad ( dallab kcor tfos )

in the bits beyond the leas
so the mincing minstrels moan
spins a tale of wailing hymns
& a land of sanded stone

of the shale within the fro
oh, the shifting skins of turf
& a rumble underneath
from the stomach of the earth

as the cabbage salad splats
as the lunar minded squawk
& a spider frees the flies
chimes a chaffinch, talkin’ chalk

in the innards of upon
as a loaf of hillocks roll
once a forest – since a ghost
& the afterlife is coal

under crumble-jumbled skies
in a broken wonky key
aye, the strumming poets ponce
& the song’s ge-ol-o-gy

in the bits beyond the leas
so the mincing minstrels moan
spins a tale of wailing hymns
& a land of sanded stone
