The Writing On the Wall Has Been Covered by Graffiti

by Jerry Ratch


The graffiti has grown so large

It has covered everything we know and love

It has covered the windows, shutting out the light

And it's all about leaving your mark


The ones who are living outside your walls

Have grown worried about leaving their mark

And the size of the graffiti has grown so large

It's gotten into the sky


Where they're spraying graffiti in drive-by airplanes

Standing dangerously on the wingtips

With their fire-extinguisher sprayers

And they put their mark on the clouds passing by
