Trigger Warning

If some time later we will have to go away
Can we go together to the one last anywhere
With nothing left alive in here tonight right now
And no food in the pantry
That we can’t pay for anyhow
Floor paint door dog bath wall
House home dirt, nothing else to say
Brought out in the wintertime
Left in the snow there somewhere
Right of the right of way
But won’t
Bang my head on the expensive wall.
