Lonesome September by Ben Wiebe


It all began in late September,
the kind of story only Autumn could tell.
We took a ride along the Emerald Coast
while songs of the Eastern winds bellowed in the trees.

Lone specter on a ribbon of grey
pointing high into the arms of a rotting larch
We bear witness to the hang man's work
being birthed through the rays of the fading sun.

One look and you'll remember
the hot and sordid tale of yesteryear
Spring and Summer bringing joy and laughter,
but the very next season, the slaughter begins.

Dead body on the side of the road,
well it's got my eyes and it's heaven sold.
Too late little darlin' all the rights have been sealed
and you're the next body on the side of the road.
