Superqueens

Ladies and gentlemen, doctors and nurses





this place is a casualty department

all our mouths moan ďnurse!

give me the x-ray of your attention

prescribe the lifting of my curse



itís any gathering of adults,

it's a nightclub, itís a street,

dolce and gabbana is the rich kidís bandage,

the poor ones just overeat



the walking wounded and the basket cases

limp from scene to scene

hunting out some loving surgeon

with a double life-support machine

but theyíll settle for a butcher and an aspirin

- they get by



bones fuse and nerves dull,

you can even fix a smile

she says ďwe love each other really,

we just walk a crooked mileĒ



and one manís meat is anotherís e-coli,

yet no one can stand alone

this catch 22 makes mincemeat

of all the turkeys hanging on the phone



the foot soldiers and the sacrificial lambs

get dolled up and they drift

into the arms of the venus de milo,

hoping for a firemanís lift,

but they just get judo, or fuck all



but doctors and nurses, plainclothes, exist,

their soft blows heal the breaks

their tongues apply wild lotions

licking deep into the aches



these are the good spin-doctors

when the planet grinds they help it glide,

untrained, unpaid and unannounced they

appear at your side



crushed fruit can make champagne

and roses blossom in manure

natural medicine floods our veins,

venom is venomís cure

I saw them open for I Am Kloot last night. Very interesting. It's a guy reciting poetry while another guy does music on a computer.
