Truth and Normality – Written Monday 15th February 2010 (Aged 34)

Truth and Normality

it is funny
how a so called left wing liberal
who apparently is –
the rage against the machine
who apparently takes the guardian
to read as a bible
it is funny
how in fact they are not this image
and it is funnier still
how they define normality
as the very thing
they say they are not
i guess personal morals are abstract
and easily forgot
who is the weakest
me with my emotions
a mess and a splatter
but always my own
or is it them, who take whatever
rather than be alone

James Garratt – Monday 15th February 2010
