A Good Theory – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

A Good Theory

they are coming to get you
they will take your mind
and they will turn you inside out
they want you
but they are not true
but you will vote them in –
next time around
they will warp your thoughts
and they will –
make you think just like them
they have all their friends –
in power
and they they will feed them stories
then hate, despair and greed will flower

James Garratt – 1994
