Push The Dial – Written November 2022 (Aged 47)

Push The Dial

look back
and push the dial
court case
self esteem on trial
runs through the wires
self esteem
handed out flyers
do what you can
your kitchen love
is all pots and pans
so look back
and run that show
turn handles
and stop feeling low
is put to the test
gas pipes
run to the hills
i can only hope that talent
knows how to pay the bills
look back
and push on to better times
toy box love,
is not hard to find
fit like a glove
like everything above
your kitchen love
builds us up
for what lies ahead
sit here in the sunshine
and always be well fed

James Garratt – November 2022
