The Day When Tomorrow Never Comes

Your secret is sealed,
but my fingers can peel
the "DO NOT TOUCH" label right off from the lid.
Your decrepit smile,
slyly worn and beguiled,
will be torn till your cheeks cannot heal.
Heaven forbid
that Hell is only one step away,
and you're reaching the bottom
of your binding stairway.
There is no time
for counting the mistakes you have made,
for today is the day when tomorrow never comes...
and your secret is coming undone.

I suddenly feel
like your mouth needs some string
to string up the grapevine upon which you swing.
Your internal chatter
will scatter and splatter
like shattered glass dropped from a spurious wing.

Be still, oh be still,
and fill the holes with heavy souls fourfold.
Wreck them on down with a ball and chain,
a gastric vein,
and a telegraph pole.
Heaven foretold
that Hell is only one step away,
and you're reaching the bottom
of your binding stairway.
There is no time
for counting the mistakes you have made,
for today is the day when tomorrow never comes...
and your secret has become undone.

Shelter is never enough to hold us all in
from the depths of the fire.
The higher you climb the longer you'll fall.
All in all, no one is standing tall or standing at all.
Heaven falls to the Hell-mouth
that was only one step away,
and now you've reached the bottom
of your collapsing stairway.
There was no time
for counting the mistakes you had made,
for today is the day when tomorrow never comes...

They are alert watchdogs and will not hesitate to bark when they think something is amiss.
Though scent hounds may be used on ground-running birds, such as pheasants, they are primarily utilized in the tracking
of mammals. Once the birds are old enough, as early as 16
weeks old depending on the time of year they were born, they
will begin laying eggs.
