Mad Max*

 

He’s on
the
loose again

like a wild
runaway
train

got
woodchips
for a heart

and a walnut
for a
brain

 
*
 
No conductor?
No caboose?

he’s gone
plumb
crazy

have you heard
the news?

engineer’s
soused

rails are comin’
loose

he’s all set
to blow

he just lit
the fuse

 
*
 
He don’t give
a hoot

coz WE pay
his dues

 
 *

He’s hoping now
to
bring

the whole
world
down

so pick up
your
duds pal

and get
out
of town
 
*
 
Mad Max is
comin’

a-rushing
this way

go on spread
the news

reekin’ of
backy

and yesterday’s
booze

he’s in dead
earnest

though he may
look
like a clown

hoping this
time

to take us
ALL down

 
*
 
So don’t hang
around bud

get the heck
outa town

 
* I’ll let you guess who Mad Max is: I rather think there’s more than one of him out there…?
