A Poem a Day to Millennium 28 September 1999
 

FREEZE - FRAME

Men in suits in big black cars
     seen passing in the night
     on errands of a devious sort
     with money in their sights
Men in suits in big black cars
     with power on their minds
     speeding down the highway
     paying no fines
Men in suits in big black cars
     holding all the aces
     and keeping files with photos
     of everybody's faces
Men in suits in big black cars
     bearers of bad news
     whenever they assault the scene
     it seems you always lose
Men in suits in big black cars
     waiting for a plane
     proclaiming they are patriots
     insisting they are sane
Men in suits in big black cars
     slightly overweight
     sipping thier whiskeys
     awaiting their fate
Men in suits in big black cars
     frozen here in time.
- Paul Malècot
