Watching the Death Clock spin around,
McCartney and Lennon calm me down,
The Doctor’s call is late,
Torture in this wait.
She’s so close, everything I’ve dreamed,
Seems Murphy wrote His Law for me,
Karma’s final “fuck you?”
“Jai Guru Deva Om, Nothing’s gonna change my world.”*
“Jai Guru Deva Om, Nothing’s gonna change my world.”
I don’t know what’s coming.
It came and wasn’t the horrible beast I had imagined.
