Honest Hitchhikers (Silver Sun Rip)

Totally sedated
living through the ages.
Join in the last hurrah
with open sores and open palms.
One foot already in the grave
'cause the seal was broken
by the time
the misaddressed package
arrived at my house.
Assorted true fictions
let out with a yelp.
a down turn in the proceedings.
On foot on the shattered floor
while a bleeding voice
gives directions
over a staticy p.a.
Go ask mommy, dearest
for permission
to slip away in the night.
Hopefully never to return.
To always move on
never doubling back
to pick up honest hitchhikers.
