Crazy Youth Days – Written Wednesday 25th November 2020 (Aged 45)

Crazy Youth Days

crazy youth days
stand to attention
and they salute
my pied piper has a flute
an army of
misty eyed adventures
told like ragged folk tales
or new age ghost stories
they all stand to attention
and salute those days
of soft water nights
and diarised friends
they all salute the days
that did not seem to bend
what can i say now
a brain overloaded
with electric creativity
will burn both ends
and then, even friends
it will build partners
and it find homes
crazy youth days
crazy, crazy, crazy youth days
