All, True Love


Billie Holiday, and the blues

Walter Croncite and the news,

Able and his brother, Cain

Eliza and the rain in Spain

Moses and the Promised Land,

And KC & The Sunshine Band

All... True love.


Yeah, Casanova and his nuts,

The Virgin Mary and all of her fucks,

Antoinette and the guillotine,

King Henry, and his ‘perfect' queen, and

Romeo and Juliet, and

Impalas, Valiants and Corvettes,

All... True love.


Yeah, Mother Earth and Father Time,

John Lennon and the number nine ,

Yeah, Lou Reed and his heroin ,

Yeah, Barbie and her neuter, Ken

Yeah, beat poets and their lack of rhythm ,

Yeah, Andy Warhol and ‘Popism'

Yeah... All, true love.


Sharon Tate and Charles Manson,

The S.L.A. and Patty's ransom,

The Stars & Stripes, and Uncle Sam , and

Greenpeace and the Ku Klux Klan

Hugh Hefner and the centerfold

Bob Marley (and the joints he rolled),

And Carl Orff and Carmina Burana, and

The fall of apartheid, and

Boputhuswana

All... True love.


Herr Hitler, und Mien Kempf, und

Marquis d'Sade and all of his romps,

Stonewall and the age of A.I.D.S.

Abortion, and gay rights parades,

Serial killers and the books they write,

And Charles Atlas, (and his cellulite.)

Adam and that temptress, Eve

(Again, Bob Marley and his weed )

Ying and Yang,

And Gang and bang

All True love.
