Walter's Garden

We are planting Walter's garden in the coming of the spring When the fear of frost is over, we are plowing over clover To be planting Walter's garden where the sweet birds sing I read the file on Walter Smith, who died inside the jail His breath was made of ashes and his cheek was colored pale His teeth were amaryllis, except where they were black And his morals were as crooked as the pretzel of his back Now he had always had the asthma, in his file it said And the only thing that helped it was the fresh Columbian Red So he planted half an acre and watered it with tears Till the sheriff caught him hoeing it and gave him seven years Now we're planting Walter's garden in the coming of the spring When the fear of frost is over, we are plowing over clover To be planting Walter's garden where the sweet birds sing So they threw him in Angola in a rusty, rolling chair Where he could suck to heart's content the un-Columbian air But with every breath that Walter took, the phones around him rang In the offices of journalists, where no birds sang He filed lawsuit after lawsuit, till the courts concerned themselves With our Devil's Island prisons in their Devil's Island dells
