Carols in October

Jingle bells jingle bells and all that ringing in my ears

The bells of Christmas early at the supermarket door

Salvation Army kettle before a young woman losing her youth

To the heavy burdens of saving the souls of ghetto dwellers

On the gully bank of soft smiles and heavy whispers of guns

And roses red and black and blue on the casket this morning

Down at Dovecot Memorial Park where the pastor hoarsely

Muttered dust to dust and the gravediggers quickly covered up

The final resting place and begged tips from anyone

In a clean suit on the edge of the crowd while the jukebox

Played carols in October for Christmas early this year
