THE LAZY SUNBATHERS

A world war
Was announced
Days ago
But they didn't know
The lazy sunbathers
The lazy sunbathers

The sun burns through
To the planet's core
And it isn't enough
They want more

Nothing
Appears
To be
Between the ears of
The lazy sunbathers
Too jaded
To question stagnation
The sun burns through
To the planet's core
And it isn't enough
They want more

Religions fall
Children shelled
"...Children shelled ? That's all
Very well, but would you
Please keep the noise
Down low ?
Because you're waking
The lazy sunbathers ..."

Oh, the lazy sunbathers
The lazy sunbathers


An anonymous correspondent writes :

"Apparently in the first days after Germany invaded Poland, it was hot beautiful weather in Berlin (and I believe a holiday as well), and crowds of people went to the Wahnsee (a big lake) to sunbathe, both in a sort of state of denial, and knowing this would be the last pleasurable moment before war broke out...".
