Al calduccio sotto le mie copertine (n.20)

The Decemberists, Picaresque, 2005

Sixteen military wives
Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes
Staring at the natural tan
of thirty-two gently clenching wrinkled little hands
Seventeen company men
Out of which only twelve will make it back again
Sergeant sends a letter to five
Military wives, whose tears drip down through ten little eyes

Cheer them on to their rivals
'Cause America can, and America can't say no
And America does, if America says it's so
It's so!
