The sun rose up

In the east today

And I didn't raise a fight

Walking backwards in the crowd

Something isn't right


My sentence read

From right to left

And not once I'd have the might

To question the authority,

Something isn't right


Picking flowers

Daffodils

He loves me, don't lose sight!

But his equations don't add up

Something isn't right


God cried down

His silent rain

Not ceased 'till break of night

A non-stop pour since quarter-past four

Something isn't right


I try not

To disrespect

Though it's hard to be polite

When my world's caught in the swirl

Something isn't right


Fires freeze

And dwindle out

Determined to ignite

Ice paves way to judgment day

Something isn't right


Teach me how

To turn the clock

Flee the ultraviolet light

Fast-forward through these chronic blues

Something isn't right


I sit alone

In backwards world

Many verses to recite

I jot them down to raise my frown

Something isn't right
