Oh down at the tavern


the children are singing


around their round table


and around me still.


Did you hear what it said?

I only said


how there is a pewter urn


pinned to the tavern wall,


as old as old is able


to be and be there still.


I said, the poets are tere


I hear them singing and lying


around their round table


and around me still.


Across the room is a wreath


made of a corpse's hair,


framed in glass on the wall,


as old as old is able


to be and be remembered still.


Did you hear what it said?

I only said


how I want to be there and I


would sing my songs with the liars


and my lies with all the singers.


And I would, and I would but


it's my hair in the hair wreath,


my cup pinned to the tavern wall,


my dusty face they sing beneath.


Poets are sitting in my kitchen.


Why do these poets lie?


Why do children get children and


Did you hear what it said?

I only said


how I want to be there,


Oh, down at the tavern


where the prophets are singing


around their round table


until they are still.
