On The Saturday Sidelines

Sitting at the threshold of a closed door

What could better illustrate the new generation’s hopes

All dressed-up and nowhere to go

The masters have an offer you can’t refuse

A perfect night with no end in sight

Like rabbits in a cage trust the hand that brings the feed

But time will come when the carrot will change into a knife …
