You Cannot Dry it In the Rain – Written November 2016 (Aged 41)

You Cannot Dry it In the Rain

the poor white man has such a pain
his bowl is big,
but he demands more again
no one has listened
to a truth in his tears
he is found by the liars
who easily mobilise his lonely years
social justice,
as a term is bled
it becomes misunderstood
and then it is turned on its head
turning right, always means turn right
no amount of pre decoration
puts nastiness out of sight
the poor white man bought up by the liars
they told them about, ‘political correctness’
and this fake term needs to be on fire
but it is all, ‘false flags’
false truths…
pain remains…
you cannot dry this stuff out in the rain

James Garratt – November 2016
