-hey-

Sorry-Sorry

I saw a small anti war march come flowing past me today, like a wounded animal - it was shrieking:

NO BLOOD FOR OIL
NO BLOOD FOR OIL

and I was with all these other people sort of walking in the other direction, cos I had some place to be and things to do and the forces kinda spilled up against each other

NO BLOOD FOR OIL
NO BLOOD FOR OIL

and as I passed through the mob I saw this boy trip fall on one need knee - he had blond hair and he was screaming

NO BLOOD FOR OIL
NO BLOOD FOR OIL

and my eyes where wet cos the sun was sort of low making lazy shadows and the street - oxford road - is really long like a viaduct with sun coming like veins through the bodies
police

the blond haired boy

and banners and blood
- fake blood

NO BLOOD FOR OIL
NO BLOOD FOR OIL

and I thought about my {action in-action} morality
and the pram, which no one seems to see
and then it was all gone before I could
make it
before I could hold it in
Keep it down
