A MYSTERY IN BAGHDAD

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

 

While it rains for another century

let me tell you about a mystery

                                   in Baghdad

although I didn’t want to involve you

It’s something you gotta know

I just hope you won’t be too upset

                                       with me

but I got lost in war and lost an eye

                                 over Bermuda

Now I got a driving pain in my back

and my doctor says I can’t talk too well

                                               anymore

 

 

written in summer of 1983
