about this table


There's a lifetime in a bottle of wine, he said
Poured me a glass, but poured his lifetime instead

All your children know my face
All your children cry in disgrace
All your children carry my name
All your children are to blame

He turned and asked "What's your dream?"
Dreams may not lead where they seem
