The Thames at Battersea

The Thames at Batterseathis morning

photo by Mark Quiapos who was passing by

here’s an unfinished (?)song I forgot I wrote last year

The boatman’s tale (is underway)

Come what may, come what may, the boatman’s tale is underway

The river is wide and the bank is muddy

The boat feels drunk and I can’t stand steady

Big old storm in the name of love

Rain coming down from high above

Come what may, come what may, the boatman’s tale is underway

Mamas kickin off with new devotions

Water getting higher on all five oceans

Threes a crowd for ritual potions

Sick to death of crazy notions

Come what may, come what may, the boatman’s tale is underway

Something missing in my life

Trouble, trouble, trouble, strife

River flowing through my mind

Bringing out my kinder side

Come what may, come what may, the boatman’s tale is underway

Rivers cruel when wind hits tide

All aboard, enjoy the ride

Inconsequential anchor chain

Breaks assunder in my brain

Come what may, come what may, the boatman’s tale is underway

If we don’t make the other side

You still pay a penny for the ride
