They Remain a Negative – Written November 2012 (Aged 37)

They Remain a Negative

no good comes of some people
they never fly
they never give
they remain a negative
in an otherwise positive life
and i cannot
entertain these toxic souls
with they waste away dreams
half truths
and stories where nothing is at it seems
they turn you out to the devils
and they cause you to hate
like a virus, like catching a cold
their poison
soon catches hold
no good comes of some people
and there is nothing to be gained
they cannot be entertained
and you must keep away
like demons
who bray at your door
just ignore the call
let them sink in the toxic fumes
the slime and the sludge
let me tell you all about it
or let’s not, because it is too much




James Garratt – November 2012
