The hoarse horse
keeps running, tripping, falling
and the angry jockey forces him
to get up, run and trip and fall
and get up again

Muscular contractions manifest
bones mould into unnatural shapes
hooves hurt, the horse won't run
they say, he’s just stubborn

Should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful

fantastic figurines showed pretty faces made of porcelain until they fell from the shelf
their hollow heads revealing emptiness beneath the breakable material
and their fluffy bodies now lie amidst a thousand pieces
on the floor

Who’s got the glue
and patience
to fix this puzzle
and put all the pieces back together

Should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful

Should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful
should’ve, could’ve, would’ve been more careful

Yet the band performs their material with the brightest smile and grin, which pretty much portrays the down- and the upside of life and everything. Melancholicious. Not exactly a walk in the park. ... more
