Sullen Autumn

Three days in . . . alone
A Sunday—so I watch the boys
For the product of our video culture—what else can you ask for?

As much as I believe in the counter-culture
I am a waste case
I promote the wasteland
and I pat myself on the back

Lofty visions for a pathetic lad
Not even good enough to be called a "dreamer"
He says he has a good suicide note—
but it's as borrowed as is his time

If I were able to deal with Sir Lucifer
Would he want my soul?
And what could I possibly ask for in return?
What I need he could not offer—self respect.
