Loneliness at a Table
Loneliness wears a beard at our table,
Computer monitor lighting his face
‘Til dawn. We make him leave at noon each day,
Prohibiting his return until five.
He wears this persecution like a badge
Of honor. makes us pay in subtle ways.
Monitor lighting our table, we make
Persecution for him to wear, badger
Him five ways to noon. We have no honor.
‘Til dawn we leave by subtle ways, return
Each day his computer. Loneliness his
To make us pay, prohibiting his beard.
To make us pay he prohibits his face
Like a badge of persecution, lighting
Subtle honor, computer monitor
At our table ‘til dawn, returns at five
Each day, loneliness until a beard makes
Him leave, we make these ways a badge he wears.
He leaves, loneliness a badge he wears
Like a beard, at noon to return at five.
We prohibit his return. Computer
Monitor on our table, lighting like
Honor this persecution. Badgering
His face, we make him his persecution.
His face is for us a persecution,
A beard lit by computer monitor
At our table. Until five we make him.
Noon each day he leaves, returns no honor.
By subtle ways, ‘til dawn he wears a badge
Of prohibition, loneliness to pay.
