Love Showing

Jon James Is Dead
J.J. Benson


Build things, tear things down
Economy and ivory tower
Scrape skies with tall tales
Liars in spires
Seats of power
Brother off his brother
Build another
What is man here to do but love
And be merry in the knowing?

Love showing

Bilderbergs wear the crown
I heard you been reckless with our hearts
Naughty landlords
Crooked men
Binge, my Lord, I’m all in
Purge, my Lord, I’m crawlin’

She fit me like a glove
And she was glowing
Love showing
Saw how all was one
There was a garden there
And it was growing
And God was with us, wheezing
‘Cuz the allergy had become seasonal
Got reasons for believing
Mother Nature ain’t no high treason, girl
All the same
All suffer
But there’s a balm to buffer
