City of Scars #2 ( a peep inside Bramble Junction, Nettle Station and the Blackberry Express)


City of Scars #2

You’ve been to the bars

And sunk the jars

Sold down the river

And tattooed the stars

Groomed the first pawn on mars

Fed the bait swallowed the hook at the zombie yoga seminars

Plug in your guitars

Smuggled tortoises and budgerigars

Say your au revoirs

Bend your oompahpahs

Validating fees at the registrars

Circled the wagons and uncoupled the cars

You’re a paid up member of the city of scars
