Short Break

He raped her with his eyes the minute she walked into the office
As she stretched to hang her coat behind the door he beamed a smile so big
She could have filled it with helium and flown off across the countryside
He tried very hard to invite her out for lunch
But like most women she could sense the underlying note of danger
Her instincts kept him at a safe distance
And then he made her a cup of coffee
And the steam rose across her face

It could be you it could be me
We’ll have to wait we’ll have to see
It’s all for sale now that its time
To take a short break

The sensation of safely driving like a little boy ambition
Going around and around the mountain side makes a woman mad for attention
She hides the car keys he turns the place upside down he looks out the window
To see her driving off in the distance a cloud of country dust feathers the sunlight as she smiles into the windscreen all he can do is fold a coin through his fingers

It could be you it could be me
We’ll have to wait well have to see
It’s all for sale now that it’s time
To take a short break

There she is again this time with a pair of jeans being pulled slowly up over the curves of her body
He plays guitar in the rocking chair they are the jeans of our fore fathers
These are the jeans of the 21st century this is the new world where television and eye become one as we look down the digital telescope into the future and now its time for a short break

It could be you it could be me
We’ll have to wait well have to see
It’s all for sale now that it’s time
It’s lighter than air whiter than white
Draft in a can the price is right
Save as you go the drive of your life
It’s good to talk we say hello
We say goodbye deep frozen days
It could be you it could be me
It’s all for sale now that it’s time
To take a short break
