LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA

KEEP ME SAFE FOREVER

FAMILY NOT FAR

LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA LA

 

SUCH A LITTLE LIER

SO BAD AT TELLING TRUTHS.

MY LITTLE SISTER

COULD NEVER RESIST IT

 

WHY CANT YOU TELL THE TRUTH.

WHY SO FOND OF LIES!

 

LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA

SHOW ME WHAT YOU DID THERE.

COVER UP YOUR ARMS

 

LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA

 

MY FAVOURIT EXAMPLE

WAS WHEN SHE WAS JUST FIVE.

A TOTAL FIRE BAN DAY

FOR EVERYONE

IN THE DRY

AND CRACKLE BROWN DYSTOPIA

THAT WE CALLED HOME.

 

ARE YOU STILL WITH ME.

THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.

THE HOT WIND

ON YOUR SKIN.

QUITE THE HEAT WAVE

I HAVE DRAWN YOU ALL IN.

 

LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA

 

SHE WAS PLAYING

IN THE WOOD PILE

HAPPY WITH THE CRITTERS

AND THE SPIDERS CRAWLING THERE.

SUCH QUIET UNASSUMING COMPANY.

 

A LITTLE GIRL

PLAYING WITH MATCHES.

IT GETS A LITTLE OUT OF HAND.

 

THE TINY FLAME CATCHES

ON THE CRACKLE DRY DRY GRASS.

BURST INTO FLAMES

AND STARTS TO SMOKE REAL FAST.

 

MY FATHER RUSHES OVER

IN A PANIC

AND A RAGE.

HIS BROWN HANDS

WITH DIRTY FINGERNAILS

SAVE THE DAY.

 

WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING!

YOU COULD HAVE BURNED

DOWN THE HOUSE!

THE FARM.

STARTED A BUSH FIRE.

 

MY LITTLE SISTER STANDS THERE

HAZEL EYES WIDE

HAZEL EYES WET WITH TEARS

TEARS SALTIER THAN

THE TASTE OFOLIVES

TEARS SALTIER

THAN THE OCEAN

 

 

AS SHE CRIES

THE FAMILIAR SOUNDING LIES.

IT WAS NOT ME.

I NEVER DID.

SHE HAS CLUTCHED IN

ONE OF HER TINY FISTS.

THE BOX OF MATCHES.

A TELL TAIL SIGN.

LOUDER THAN HER INDIGNATION

LOUDER THAN HER CRYING.

 

 

MY BABY SISTER

SUCH A LITTLE LIER

TRUTH SEEMED SO VERY FAR.

 

LA LA LA LA LA

VICTIM

LA LA LA LA
