Shit Happens

Curdled milk
Hanging stench
Dry dust of poverty
Don't you dare
Agree with me

Move away
Humour me
Your superior antics
They smell of coins
And plastic cards

Oh my stains
They are memory
Eggs stolen
Pee missing the urinal
Then loss of control

Get out of my failing sight
I see more than you
I am the base
You stand on me
Try standing with me

Go to hell
You won't change
Greed has made you
I am made of poverty
You constructed both

Go away I have to leave
Bins to search
Smirks to fend off
Your time will come
You will equal me

Thank you so much for comment on this one, I was scavenging through the bins at the back of Tesco's the other day and the words just flooded in, so I found an old piece of dry cardboard and wrote them down with a broken pencil I snatched out of a school boys hand.
I have to go now the laws on assault have become so severe I tripped the other day and they locked me up for attacking the pavement.
Take care young lady I have to go now I see blue flashing lights coming my way, go live your life and smile, damn it smile.
The best is yet to come knocking at your door, if you see the old lady down the road give her my love she will understand,
Yours as always Ian.T
