The Coughalong Song

from Hospice Chorale by David E. Williams



Open up your heart and let the blood flow out.
Open up your mouth and let the bile come out.
Open up the clouds and let the sun shine through
the magnifying glass I’m holding up to you.

Better shut the window, there’s a gas in the air.
Better spread your legs, because it pays to be fair.
Open up your pores for the sweat to be had
in the sauna of my spirit, pawn of Gilead.

“Banish the weak, infertile and foolish…”

Listen to the cough.
Listen to the cough.
Listen to the cough.

Glisten like an infant
In a pink snail trough.
