The Mental Traffic Jam – Written Monday 28th October 2002 (Aged 27)

The Mental Traffic Jam

make mine a double
more than a shot
let me have the bottle
i will take the lot
give me much more
not just a penny
give me your touch
i am not your enemy
make mine a challenge
make mine a chance
let the champions
show us how to dance
give me a clue
give me a hand
life is slow in its change
only because,
of its mental traffic jam
make mine lousy
make mine good
make it out of copper
and then into wood

James Garratt – Monday 28th October 2002
