the last Yugoslav

jebi ga we lost
but at least you can
abuse a coupon coin
in frankfurt for free water
before enjoying the power
of flight
but when is my rust bucket
coming in
long overdue as it is

flash bang through the low clouds
hurtling
toward that damn mountain
top
all summer bald and stoic
but sharp
cut you and never will
you leave
never occur never release
never fully endure
but the motions are the norm
and nobody gives two shits
about the balkans
nor were the doves released
as he arrived -
one last unappreciated hero
the last true yugoslavian

but home yes well home
what is it
a hat rack
or just another land grab
and who cares
he'll be there soon
or at least the motherland
then we'll see if it is home
or just another ripple in the river
