This Is Not A Test


on February twenty-eighth, the two true lovers would escape

if only for the dice not being rolled another way


he left her to watch the stuff so she would have time to wash up

while he made a delivery to some friends on third & Maine


when the police finally found her there

she's standin' in her underwear

with half a pound of opium in parcels by the door


this is not a test


she gets scared... someone shouts

seconds later, shots rain out

and being dead or living... everyone hits the floor


on February twenty-eighth, the two true lovers would escape

if only for the dice not being rolled another way


this is not a test
