Little – Written Sunday 14th October 2001 (Aged 26)

Little

i was a little boy
they me little hope
and little joy
they me little rope
little time
and little smoke

i was a little boy
they gave me little time
little feelings
and big crimes
they gave me little chance
little affection
and led me on a merry dance

i was a little boy
now i am a man
with all my adult thoughts
i begin to understand




James Garratt – Sunday 14th October 2001
