Bottles of Madness – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

Bottles of Madness

of the course poetry will stop
the poems will cease for a while
she, as the writer,
will return to her world
with that funny looking smile
the kind that comes with those issues
that put others on trial
with her socially awkward stance
and listless hate
she will perfect the friendless dance
and sup bottles of madness by the crate
but the posting of poetry wills stop
of course,
there will be a response to this
she will rage and fake indignation
she will play act,
and the she will rearrange the situation
she will become vitriolic
underneath she is a very angry little girl
and she searches in life’s untapped well

James Garratt – October 2009
