Death is not death in Ithaca

Death is not death in Ithaca-
The world’s too far away
for all its darkest happenings
to blight the light from day.

Death is not death in Ithaca;
Where the kids don’t care for living
And the gorgeous fury sweeps aloft
The men who stop believing.

Death is not death in Ithaca-
It’s a bubble, clear as clear
We don’t get to hear the news
both good or bad over here.

Death is not death in Ithaca
Where the bells they mournful chime
We’ve since ceased caring about the reaper
We haven’t got the time.

But my soul is not in Ithaca
And the clock’s hands have been stilled
since the day you left, brokenness in your wake
The day
that you
were killed.
