All Men Are Like Flies

and other long lost poemsongs

Authored by Eddy Duhan

"I think Eddy Duhan is a better writer than Tom Waits!" Nik Venet (Legendary producer, Capitol Records, The Beach Boys, Bobby Darin, etc...)

"I have had 3 other songs written about me Eddy, but yours is the best one of them all!" Harriet Schock (Multi-platinum, award winning songwriter.)

"Yeah Eddy, this is very personal... for sure there's some really touching stuff in the book... I read the first 5-6, then skipped thru and read 7-8 more including the last four. "All Men Are Like Flies" could resonate with a lotta people and become an underground hit." Wayne Zeitner (Marketing and Development of Veggie Tales, Fancy Monkey, and Thomas Nelson.)
"All Men Are Like Flies" is a book of poemsongs by Eddy Duhan. It is the antithesis of Charles Bukowski. Eddy is a poet with a Christian worldview. He is also a songwriter whose credits include numerous CD projects with writing partner, and music producer John Andrew Schreiner, such as The Odes Project by Worship Leader Magazine and Haven Today. They also wrote a number one song together for Fernando Ortega called "Creation Song", and most recently have worked on songs for Showtime.
Eddy sings like he talks and recites his poetry with a guitar. He was influenced by the primitive American guitar playing of John Fahey. "All Men Are Like Flies" is Eddy Duhan's first collection of poetic works selected from 1969 to 2011, and is published by Long Lake Publishing. 'So roll over Bukowski, Duhan's got the good news!'
All Men Are Like Flies...

all men are like flies
caught in the web
of the world's lies
woven by their
foolish pride
each night
and every morn
souls to misery
are born
each morn
and every night
souls are born
in sweet delight
but whether born
day or night
to misery
or sweet delight
all men are like flies
caught in the web
of the world's lies
woven by their
foolish pride.
_The House of Daniel, 1969.
Besieged By Bukowski...

this wall is green
that wall is blue
these walls have ears
they have eyes too.

this wall frames my mother's face
this wall a sheet of frozen ice
the other wall is melting wax
my grandfathers bones spill from the cracks.

outside is the city
more cruel than any walls
almost nothing is far better
than nothing at all.

never dare to venture out
disconnect the phone and lower the shades
it creeps to the call of bells and lights
the city is an open grave.

and the last wall will crawl
with angry famished spiders
finally the walls are all we have
to remain within and hide forever.
Love Is All There Is...

my father was a miner;
he worked in the underground.
we all lived in two-room shack,
by a lake outside of town.
my mother and my father
and 5 kids running around.
then one day tragedy struck,
and my father he went down.

love is all there is,
love is all there is.
it can bind you together,
or it can tear you apart.
but love is forever,
when love is in your heart,
love is all there is...

I've been around this whole wide world;
I've been up to the Eiffel Tower.
seen everything there is to see from there,
and wandered through the ruins of power.
stood out under the sky of stars,
up in the great white north.
heard the voice of God in a baby's cry,
and for all this life is worth.

love is all there is...

once I went back to old moontown
and found our house still standing there
I stared down into the black hole past
but couldn't see anything anywhere
not one memory of my father
came from the silent walls of time
just a longing for what might have been
if daddy had come home from the mine

love is all there is...
