For the devils night fires
Same to you too town cryer
Top O'the morning morbid
Quite a day we're having gorgeous
Devil’s night fires — Since the early 1900’s in the Detroit area, there has been a period of time before Halloween (usually the night before) when kids organize and commit crimes around the city. Since the 1970’s, the crimes got more serious and included arson. Devil’s night has since become known for the large amount of fires that are set all over Detroit.
Town Cryer — An employee of the court who was responsible for making public announcements in an eloquent speech-like fashion. Thanks to the computer and news papers/networks, you won’t see them very often anymore. This is probably a reference to the media then.
He then addresses two people, one described as morbid (obsessed with death) and gorgeous (beautiful).
He finishes with uninspired, a reference to the boring people who do little but live their lives in a normal way.
