Dream Song 110: It was the blue & plain ones. I forget all that

It was the blue & plain ones. I forget all that.
My own clouds darkening hung.
Besides, it wasn’t serious.
They took them in different rooms & fed them lies.
‘She admitted you wanted to get rid of it.’
‘He told us he told you to.’

The Force, with its rapists con-men murderers,
Has been our Pride (trust Henry) eighty years;—
Now Teddy was hard on.
Still the tradition persists, beat up, beat on,
Take, take. Frame. Get set; cover up.
The Saturday confessions are really something.

Here was there less or nothing in question but horror.
She left his brother’s son two minutes but—
As I say I forget that—
During the time he drowned. The laundry lived
And they lived, uncharged, and went their ways apart
With the blessing of the N. Y. Police Force.
