‘Evelyn Says’

Evelyn says beware the drop bear
I scribble verses in the air

I push the water and the paint
Random lines, some bold, some faint

And wrestle with a crocodile
Despondency then force a smile

Remembering the sun that strikes
On sandhill sleds and cruiser bikes

Without a song I feel unwell
Steal one to make one so no one can tell

And lose my footing, lose all sense
Of things I love that give offence

Let it sink in
Let it sink in

Evelyn says to clear the desk
My fear of life, financial risk

Blues dynamic and funny too
He learned to play it better than you

It’s not a mystery, not a trick
Nothing to do with the devil’s music

Let it sink in
Let it sink in

Evelyn says behold apocalypse
Maps and books, flags and ships

Evelyn says beware the drop bear
Evelyn says beware
