When The Change Comes

i’m not sure why your windows are all shut
said a man with a beer gut & tan don’t you
know that the change’s coming sooner than
you think (but we all shook our heads had
some more to drink (it dulled that impulse
to get political (switch off the interpol man!
when the change comes it’s going to flatten
the pane trigger dissolutions & cause storm
water drains to overflow (i said clancy stop
complaining o he had a hornet in his bonnet
damned expensive it was to remove a bang
or a buck or a vote or a bigot or a luvvie ha
from where i’m standing it looks quite grim
pray for a change & then learn how to swim
