On Top of the World – Written November 2012 (Aged 37)

On Top of the World

some people claim
to be on top of the world
but their claim
needles the insane
when will the pain be tamed?
and not have such a vicious bite?
i have watched them
as they become exposed
old fashioned horse and cart
old fashioned clothes
even though you are falling apart
you whistle a happy tune
that does not really work
some people can shut out the cold
and claim even when they are not,
that they are on top of the world




James Garratt – November 2012
