Songs from Riotous Living

SO LIE NOW CAPTAIN SWING (final song)

So lie now Captain Swing
Down into the clean brown earth
And what’s left
Imagine in the mind’s eye.
Painting and fictions,
Archives of memory.
These names
We brought into being
Are now silenced
Mute images
Of something like these portrayals.
Lie now Captain Swing
Down into the clean brown earth.
