Lady Lemonade

Lady Lemonade gives what she has
She sits in the parking lot passing out Life
Lady Lemonade appropriates all she can
Life and a smile, Life and a smile on wheels
But people walk by as if she wasn’t there.

No logic involved no mathematical clues
To lead and guide her way through
Just knowledge of what is real-what matters?
“What you say and what you do”
A tape recording in her head doesn’t stop
Though she’s invisible she knows the truth.

Tap, tap, tapping the motion in her head
Continuous drum, drum, drumming on fiery led
She gives what she has to other people who pass
A moment in time slipping away into dread
Will they listen? Will they hear what she said?
Ha! No more acting fucking nice all the time.

She screams out loud as people walk by
Her mouth is open wide but nothing emerges
Holding onto the silver wheels spinning, fly!
What is this life I’m so stuck in this chair
She pulls out her hair and pulls some more
The clumps in her hand come out grey.

Lady Lemonade gives what she can
Life and a smile, Life and a smile on wheels.
