Cowboy Leaders – Written Thursday 12th October 2005 (Aged 30)

Cowboy Leaders

saddle up the horse
it’s time to get moving
it’s time to face the world
a revolution is overdue
take down the banners
take down the balloons
do not bother with the vote
the end is coming is soon
the revolution is the latest tune
saddle up the horse
it’s a world of cowboy leaders
galloping lamely around the course
i did not vote them in
i did not want their suits
their sick slick smile
only makes me sick
i have vomited up my guts
just not yet my hate
for if only we could learn
from all these terrible mistakes
saddle up the horse
for these cowboy leaders

James Garratt – Thursday 12th October 2005
