All poems

As good as it gets

(A poem for two voices by The GameCat and Calm Carl)

Let the wanker
See the dick splash
Let the madam
See the whiplash
Let the Junky
See the green grass
Let the addict
See the morass

Let the children
See the knife flash
Let the mothers
See the bomb blast
Let the drunkard
See the half glass
Let the old man
See the oak casque

It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet
It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet

Let the duckling
See the foie gras
Let the princes
See the hoo-ha
Let the headlines
See the sidetrack
Let the banker
See the kick back

Let the gunner
See the aircraft
Let the soldier
See the top brass
Let the victim
See the nerve gas
Let the people
See the impasse

It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet
It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet

Let the fledgling
Fear the hard ground

Let the black box
Fear the splash down

Let the puppy
Fear the impound

Let the kiddies
Fear the playground

Let the miser
Fear the next round

Let the manic
Fear the low down

Let the silence
Fear the whole sound

Let the old lost
Fear the new found


Let the poet

Be the word

Let the blind

Be the heard

Let the enemy

Be your friend

Let the beginning

Be the end

Let the love

Be the light

Let the coward

Feel the fight

Let the me

Be the reason

For the ever changing season

It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet
It's as
Good as it gets, as good as it gets
We're not there but we'll get there yet
