Single mother struggles hard
Children playing in the yard
She has changed now, must be strong
Daddy isn't here now, he's long gone.
I lie on my back and anticipate pain
As I wait to be ravaged again and again
I think "my life hasn't always been like this"
But of lately it's been more hit than Miss.
All Beacuse Of You
All Because of You
To scream at the top of my lungs, to run through a field full grass
To climb to the top of a mountain, to shatter a room full of glass
THREE ORANGE CATS
I live in a house near three orange cats.
One's small, one's medium, one's gorgeously fat.
Raining Rocks and Sheep
From Llanberis near the steamer's track
peak in sight, no going back.
Twelve of us guardians
nineteen young hooligans
I gave you a kaleidoscope so you could see the world.
That is the plot.
Your cylindrical gaze rose
over the desert,still you saw a mosaic of glass,
I knew a moment, a reunion.
You lifted me onto your shoulders, happily
carried my weight.
The heaviness of memories,
manchesters gay village
It's so grotesque to see,
The live stock strolls in
Like lambs to the slaughter.
the 10pm advert
Have you seen that promotional program?
It tells you what the trends of the times are
Like murder, drugs and sex.
It shows great graphic scenes
On first eating an oyster . . .
Taste this swirl of salt wind
Feel this glide of white wings over tide-tugged water
