THE PIANIST (2002)

the baby grand in the living room
under the coat of arms
and cedar roof beams

what's to become of us?

sold for gold teeth, a cracked spyglass,
back alley blitzkrieg and
Cayman Island cucarachas

what's become of us?

you gotta be a prodigy to survive
and even then, sticky fingers prevail
