Was it this place with no palace on the hill
just quill’s quilters and maids
a quartered lemon for a squeeze
for the sour taste the only thrill
And Out of town hotel with a moral high road
that leads to the low road ride
but can’t now find the pipers pier .
where they tried to turn songs into a film
children staring at stars in books
as the ones on screen don’t seem appear.
The sum of a man is the trial and survival of the sea
Measured by imperial horizons seen from summits
Of a older know world measured by gracefully clarity.
