Down by the water

 

No ground beneath your feet

 

Everything is in free fall

That’s how it goes just before the end

A sense of disorienting weightlessness

Rushing wind

A particular madness

The last rulers of Rome

Knew only too well

 

We go about our lives

As if we weren’t all upside down

As if this is the natural order

But deep down we know

This rush of blood to the head

Is our last thrill

And it all ends with a crash.

 

 

 

To be clear, this is in no way related to  yesterday’s election.
