Merry is the man
with money in his hand

with grease between the wheels
and lamps in his latrine

and stacks of fresh towels for his wet hands

counting up all his toys

draining tent fire from the neighbors

sermons from soldier boys

like our young cadet
whose lords require sweat

‘til Spain is on its ass
surrendering Philippines

He‘s stuck in ruts wearing lead pants

buried chest-deep in a Maginot

Wondering when he'll touch flesh again

next chance he gets, he must tell her:
you've got Radium eyes”

He can see his girl
with temporary curls

And a doorbell-fetching maid
pour fêtes a la piscine

but she’s working, changing the bedpans

in cities where none but daughters roam

stretchers fill every cathedral

tarpaulins drip from each broken dome

“You've got Radium eyes”
Day meets night in your eyes

Black turns white in your eyes
