When the wind came down
and it crashed against our shelter,
took the doors right off the hinges,
scattered everything about.
I was feeling like a lightbulb
left flickering in the entrance
of that place so long abandoned
that it dreams of burning out.
Then it swept by all those ancient trees
and tore them from their places
from the tallest to the smallest,
the slender to the stout
and I was standing like a scarecrow
in a field long gone to drought
and all the crows have flown away
there's nothing left to fear me now.
Then the few remaining standing
packed their unbroken possessions
and their exit before morning
hung a silence in the air.
I've got the cure for lonesome
in a bottle 'round here somewhere
and I'm waiting for the Devil
I've been told that he may care.
