Dead Men Walking

Dead men walking ‘cross the screens and calling

For the power and the glory in their name

Wailing for a higher wall to poke their fingers in

While they raise all the stakes in the game

Dead men walking ‘cross the screens and calling

For a race where no winners cross the line

Demarcations drawn in chalk silhouettes

While substitutes wait impatiently their time

Dead men walking ‘cross the screens and calling

Waiting whistle for the final to kick off

Warming up trajectories with squinted eyes

Through the smoke of plotted molotov

Dead men walking ‘cross the screens and calling

Hammers raised in time with rhetoric

Dead men walking, commentating tournament

Rattling corpses digging up their dirty tricks

Dead men walking ‘cross the screens and calling

In sharp shrouded suits retarding self-igniting flames

Ghouls from the ghettoes of selected cemetries

Epitaph their blame and shame their names
