Big Bad Life – Written November 1999 (Aged 24)

Big Bad Life

big bad life
big bad world
and a plastic knife
big bad people
flirting with a different church
just trying to climb the steeple
big bad day
it tried to kick me when i was down
and then, it would not go away
big bad glass
on a window so stained
today the doorbell rang
and it was them again
big bad life
big bad world
it seems like, ‘hell’
yet a hell that is so very cold




James Garratt – November 1999
