Many – Written Wednesday 1st September 2010 (Aged 35)


i will sit down with a drink,
or maybe two
whilst you judge me
i will judge you
and we try to work out –
what that means
sell a pocketful of dreams
we are talking –
about the, ‘one’
but surely –
life is about many
and the friendships –
i have
they give me plenty
people who i meet, women
they try to tell me
who they are
sometimes, i am not listening
because i wonder if –
the prize is actually glistening
i will sit down –
and talk about my job
i probably talk far too much
so what does it all mean
change me and find my luck
