AVALANCHE BLUES
by Leslie Fish

I really hate dying. Revival is pain.
I really hate freezing. It's bad for the brain.
I've got those
Stuck under this mountain of snow,
Please hurry and dig me out, Duncan,
Blues.

I don't care for skiing. I just went along.
Now I'll nag you for decades for doing me wrong.
I've got those
No, I can't out-ski an avalanche.
Get some help to speed it up, Duncan,
Blues.

My fingers are freezing, and so are my toes.
I don't care to lose them, or shorten my nose.
I've got those
Don't want to spend decades
On holy ground growing back digits
Blues.

I can see daylight shining dim through the snow.
Goddammit, keep digging. Just a metre to go.
I've got those
Yes, I'm keeping busy
Making stupid don't-think-about-freezing
Blues.

Yes, I've got those
Been there and done that,
Can't wait to get out of here
Blues.

Yes, I've got those
I'll give this to Joe and
Get him to play it tonight for you
Blues.
