Parting Shot – Written Monday 10th January 2011 (Aged 35)

Parting Shot

i need…
well, what do i need?
without desire –
and sometimes invade –
in my life
bored easily?
life, but not full fat
or a version which is light
i need…
well, how can i answer that?
is it just a game of monopoly
and guess who is the top hat
snakes and ladder
felt and glue
let’s pretend –
and stage a play that is never true
i need..
who know what
find me the recipe of life
and bring me a special pot
because this sarcastic humour
it is my parting shot
