Metal Postcard (Mittageisen) Testo

Testo Metal Postcard (Mittageisen)

Reunion begins
with a glass of mercury
whilst television flickers
for (with) another news bulletin
flints light up the eyes
of the seated family

"Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my masterscheme"

With a clockwork jerk
pluck cogs from fob watches
for dinner on Friday
then recoiling say excuse me
"Must go recycle
my precious machinery"


It's ruling our lives
there is no hope
thought I'd drop a line
the weather here is fine
but day and night it blares
commanding through loudspeakers:-
