[poetry] Silence Is Golden

Человек, похожий на Дмитрия Медведева, безусловно, совершенно офигенный поэт. Коллеги, преодолейте пожалуйста своё презрение к человеку, похожему на Дмитрия Медведева, и вчитайтесь.

Silence Is Golden

If I had a pistol to hold in my hand
I'd hunt down and silence the Good Humor man
I'd pour sticky ice-cream all over his wound
And stop him forever from playing that tune
For silence is golden on a soft summer day
It's a pity to let strangers take it away

If ever I get me a license to kill
I'll war on the jukebox and jackhammer till
The wind and the rain rust up all their parts
And the worms and woodchucks dissect their hearts
For silence is golden and hard to be found
And killed far too often by the jackhammer sound

If diesels and dump trucks and gossips were words
I'd feed them like kernels of corn to the birds
And then all the thumping and bumping and pounds
Would come out forever like pretty bird sounds
For silence is golden and soft as a tear
The soft sound of empty is the next voice you'll hear

— B. R.
