The Days Of Pearly Spencer

David McWilliams

A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
In silence long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun

Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Trough walls and cracks that leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on

Iron trees smother the air
But withering they stand and stare
Trough eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass has gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin ?
What's that stubble on your chin ?
It's buried in the rotgut gin
You've played and lost, not won

You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run
