Faithful Aggression

Rookie (1991 / albuque new mexico)

Sister


Ring around the Rosie
Daddy's all dozy
Mama's in the bathroom
Sticking needles in her toeses
Sister come with me
Come close your eyes
Let us count to three
Sister we can't eat
No more food in the cabinet
Now let's make believe
Sister plug your ears
Mom and dad fighting again
Let me wipe your tears
Sister pinch your nose
Daddy's in the kitchen cooking
Glass on the stove
Sister stay in your room
We are home alone
Mom and dad are being fools
Sister lets whisper
Mom and dad came home
With weird looking misters
Sister don't be scared
One day we will wake up
And this will be just a fear
So sister come with me
Let's close our eyes
And count to three
