The pretender

 

Long walk from home

Poem in the style of a Springsteen song (sorry Boss)

When Jesus raised up Lazarus
Well, I guess he sealed his own fate
For everything that’s given in life
Something life must take

No selfless deed will go unpunished
Nor evil brought to task
The beat of this existence
is just a slow walking funeral march

It’s a long walk when your home’s at your back
It’s a long walk and no comin’ back
There’s no comin’ back

When Jesus raised up Lazarus
He knew his days were done
Lifting a soul out of the dark
Means someone’s got to lose their sun

We all have things we try to save
And tell ourselves the price ain’t too great
But when the horn blows brother
You better know why you took that walk

It’s a long walk when home’s at your back
It’s a long walk and no comin’ back
There’s no comin’ back
No comin’ back
