Sunflower Times

by David Mac

Sunflower, don’t laugh at me
Sunflower, I took you back
so be good

Sunflower, the boys in bars
playing the fruit machines
make too much noise
and it’s Sunday
it’s awful

Sunflower, are you like me?
I am a sunflower too, in a way

But come 12 o’clock noon
I’ll be drunk and full of
red-faced bleak words
hateful as old grey town
derelict abandoned
buildings forlorn
dying is sad news…
soul news…

So sunflower don’t hate me
don’t be like me
Get out the shade

Stick to what you’re good at
