Telephone Is Screaming (Sideswipe) Blues


Telephone Is Screaming (Sideswipe) Blues – Harvey Dog (2022)

Phone Fear - drawing by Harvey Dog 2022

landscapes
dark & bleary,
shadow bats
swoop in
a mad jitterbug
dance of wings

It’s going to be a long night
a long night of the tortured soul

C-
The telephone is screaming
the sideswipe blues,
somebody’s scheming
to give me bad, bad news
the telephone is screaming.

a momentary silence,
I know who it is
I know who it is
and it can’t be good,
it won’t stop,
it’s continuous,
vibrations
warning of
incoming
…wrath

Silent Fear - drawing by Harvey Dog 2022

I’m afraid to move,
I’m afraid of exposing
my location,
l’ll sit here
in fearful silence,
I know who it is,
it’s going to be a long night
a long, long night of the tortured soul

C-
The telephone is screaming
the sideswipe blues
somebody’s scheming
to give me bad, bad news
the telephone is screaming…

it’s going to be a long night
a long, long night of the tortured soul
a long, long night.
