They Keep On Telling Me – Written Tuesday 28th November 1994 (Aged 19)

They Keep on Tell Me

they keep on telling me
it is going to be alright
everyone says,
it is going to be alright
that is what they keep on saying
look at me, out here
i am just waiting
the people work hard
listening to good news propaganda
and, do not worry about –
life’s gradual descent
do not worry about –
people getting made redundant
inflation is going down a couple of percent
it is more good news propaganda
it is meant to mean something
i am going to be alright
it means not a thing
it is going to be alright
but how much longer will we listen?




James Garratt – Tuesday 28th November 1994
