Glass Houses – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)

Glass Houses

people in glass houses should not throw stones
should not be putting down the lonely
when they themselves, are so alone
they should not shout and scream their head
and demand two sides to their story
when they never listened to a word being said
people should not be the pot –
calling the electric kettle black
should not be the behaviour that they easily attack

people in glass houses should not throw stones
they should not claim to be understanding
when their word have always been out of reach
and they themselves, are so alone
they should not claim to be open minded
when that philosophy is not something they teach
and they should not attack the lonely
and claim they alone define normality as their own
people in glass houses should not throw stones




James Garratt – November 2006
