Reaction – Written Wednesday 13th December 2000 (Aged 25)


with change
there is no reaction
it is just the same
you only get reaction
with change
you are trying to change things
you have a plan
but its meaning is missed
people would rather wear sneakers
act like lemmings and jump off a cliff

with change
comes a little hope
but turn a corner
and there is the populous holding a rope
they want to hang
and they are not so strange
they swing in the wind
that howling wind of change
who wants a solution
just wear our running sneakers
and run straight into oblivion

James Garratt – Wednesday 13th December 2000
