No Excuses – Written March 2014 (Aged 39)

No Excuses

we excuse people
oh, they have a good heart
but these people –
for me, their intelligence has no start
they hate, ‘paedophiles’
yet they are the worst
they think nothing of school age girls
and commenting on their skirt
they always think they are right
even though their life,
has never finds such great height
the racism,
is a cowards way out
it is not black or brown
it’s their miserable lives,
that’s what its all about
small minded men
with a hateful shout
they want to be big men
but they have no actual intelligent clout
no excuses
and we say they have a good heart
they are a hateful bunch
and we should always set them apart

James Garratt – March 2014
