Labels, Labels, Labels – Written December 2009 (Aged 34)

Labels, Labels, Labels

labels, labels, labels
in fact,
i am not that keen
horror, horror, horror
oh, just let me dream
and let me grasp –
at the one lazy straw
the one,
that tangible thought –
has to offer
labels, labels, labels
i will drown them in gin
and in,
stories, stories, stories
but not yours,
with their content so thin
oh, just let me be –
the person i worked so hard –
to pull our of the bins
dust them down –
and write something for
labels, labels, labels
give them constant dreams
and the need to be sure
labels, labels, labels
oh, i am not that keen
horror, horror, horror
