Hear the Cries

from Oxygen 21 by Enda Reilly



Hear the Cries, Enda Reilly 2007

Feed the cats
Feed the dogs
Leave the rats
Eat the frogs

Breed the bats
Free the swine
Believe the gnats
Heed the lion

Fly the kite
Be a bus
Live a lot
Make a fuss

Kick a bear
Don’t bear all
Wear a dictionary
to the ball

Hit the head
Nail me down
Feel the pulse
Slow slow down

Drop the line
Line them up
Bridge a gap
Pick a pup

Laugh a mound
Breeze for you
Bring a friend
Crash for two

Be a bitch
Blame your lies
Kill a man
Hear the cries

Cry aloud
Loud is vale
Valleys fall
into the dale

Both are brilliant
Brilliant luck
Look for peace
Find a nut (find a nut)


Find a nut, find a nut…
In a house
In a hut, In a hut
In a house, In a hut
