Sly Attack- Most Likely Written Sometime Between September and November 1994 (Aged 19)

Sly Attack

sly attack, running too fast
not looking back,
feeling bad,
only seeing a tunnel of black
she has got a cheap dress
but has a nice velvet hat
she loves to love,
on thursday evenings
that is a fact
she says she is a poet
of imagination, there is not a lack
she wants to be a witch
but cannot afford a cat
do not be like your parents
think, they are no more than a trap
they keep you in
friends can treat you strange,
no more than a mat
walk all over you,
going to his flat
you know what to do
put up the latch
for he is quite a good man
just not a popular catch
to make magic in the head
like he is on the attack
and he wants everyone dead

James Garratt – 1994
