Entertained – Saturday 17th October 1998


in these older days
it is making your own entertainment time
it is my year of laments
in these strange days
that pass quicker than i like
i sit back and laugh
i gave up the fight
who cares about the result
i was only ever fighting myself anyway
i see so much
but seem to know so little
life’s skeleton seems broke
but i always suspected it to be brittle
in these passing hours
i hope i get to meet you
i do not need any flowers
your company will do
it is time to make my own entertainment
that is all i can do
