I Will Add the Lime – Written Tuesday 28th August 2001 (Aged 26)

I Will Add the Lime

it has turned out fine
it has turned out good
you light the fire
and i will add the wood
it has been a good harvest
the fruit are ripe
you give me the day
i will add the night
you give me the meal
i will add the spice
but i will not argue
i will not fight
it has turned out good
you can be fine
you can be extra special
i will add the sublime
you can be the vodka
and i will add the lime




James Garratt – Tuesday 28th August 2001
