Glory Of The 80’s – Tori Amos

in 1985 i was electromagnetically sucked
back into a party going on that night
it was the gory of the 80s with karma drawn up in lines
and 2 bugle boy models saying “;baby it’s a freebie
you sure look deprived.”; I had the
Story of O in my bucket seat
of my wanna be mustang
auditioning for reptiles in their
Raquel Welsh campaign
in the glories of the 80s you said
“;I’m not afraid to die”; I said
I don’t find that remotely funny, even
on this space cake high
and then when it all seemed clear
just then you go and disappear
silicone party babies to the left
and Joan of Arcs to the right
no one feeling insecure
we were all gorge and famous in our last lives
in the glories of the 80s you said
“;the end is nothing to fear”; I said
blow the end
now baby who do i gotta shag to get outta here
and then when it all seemed clear
