Lives' Lines

Sketch a simple blunder
drawn up and described -
now a book
About the battle lines
we hide

About a tennis wheel
it's all so white and
by the book
Inside the lines
we ride

Inside a baseball stitch
and a flurry of dust
for the books
As down the lines
we fly

Down at the library
where the must holds
all the books
In single files
we die
