Poems on this day – 29th April 1989

The Pleasure Game

We do the best we can
To avoid injury and pain         
Except for some morons         
Who find pleasure in that game            
Hit me – if you can     
To make you feel a man          
Hit me – if you can     
To make you feel a better man

Terrified

I’m terrified of losing
It took me this long to realize   
The power that you’re using     
I can see it in your eyes          
How can Iet you go    
When I don’t want to let you go            
And I do want to let you go     
Though I don’t want to let you know

Patriotism

Your patriotism makes me sick
‘Cos you can’t support what you believe
I know you’re wrong – ‘cos I’ve seen better          
If I get the chance I think I’ll leave
