Mad Monday. (I’m rooting for you, go Monday go!)

 

 

We Six Remained (from Getting Me Back)

If I should die before I wake…

Run little hamster,

I pray the Lord my soul to take

run as fast as you can.

Sister, did you see the man,

the one with the bloody stone?

Brother did you feel the pain,

when the bullet hit the bone?

-0-

Cousin did you smell the smoke,

did you lie so still and quiet?

Uncle did you hear him choke

as the flames rolled over Zion?

-0-

Father could you hear their screams,

do they haunt you late at night?

Mother did you see their dreams

before the dreadful plight?

-0-

A precious linctus to make me feel

Another to help me sleep

And if God can hear a dead man’s prayers,

I pray my soul to keep.

-0-

Now I lay me down to rest

among the torn and drained

where millions died beneath the crest

yet, we six remained.
