“Buses and Trains” – Bachelor Girls
Mom, you didn’t say, how cruel the world is,
I could blame you for it all, but I’m grown.
Teach me, I could’ve learned by your grace known.
Each day I’m run down by trains, it’s fun this–
Game; ears ringing from sound trains make hissing.
Or a bus in front of me is coming, near miss —
Only by seconds I’m safe, empty words moan.
Why do I being pulverized feel sewn —
Together a quilt, with all pieces, its bliss.
How do I explain I needed guidance?
It hurts me, you decided, gave me up.
Without your words, boys became as chocolate,
Choosing the worst, failing being grown-up.
Addicted, inhaling them, drug sate.
You could’ve taught me better, it’s too late.
