We Do Not Need Many – Written September 2001 (Aged 26)

We Do not Need Many

you cannot keep on playing the same game
and rust does not suit lifes chains
you cannot keep on spinning the penny
we can be strong in an army of one
we do not need many
your life is the art exhibition
that very few got to see
my feelings are the admission
and i admit, i am happy to pay the fee
you cannot keep on doing the same things
playing the games
they only lead to broken dreams

James Garratt – September 2001
