Prisoner

Prisoner

Don’t feel like I belong here

Feel like I gotta go

No need to question

I think that you should know

Tired of gazing at shoes

Tired of singing the blues

I feel like a prisoner

 

They’re all telling strangers our life story

They all find their comfort from their superiors

Tired of gazing at shoes

Tired of singing the blues

I feel like a prisoner

Sleep Over

Sleep Over

The phone rings it’s for me

What you gonna say

You have a sleep over

The phone rings it’s for me

What you gonna say

You have a sleep over

Sleep over

Sleep over

 

All night all night all night all

Gonna have ourselves a sleep over

All night all night all night yeah

 

You bring a friend and I’ll bring mine

Gonna have ourselves a real good time

Hallucination

Hallucination

 

Don’t worry now it won’t take too long

I feel the effect coming on

Sullen figure overhead

Points out what is good and what is bad

 

Hallucination Hallucination

Come again and end my frustration

 

Tongue tied with Northern Lights all night long

Tried to smoke a cigarette but it’s too strong

Voices in my ear tell me it’s alright

The impossible...

Lori Looker

She greets you with a smiling face

A pretty girl with womanly grace

She couldn’t stand to touch anyone

The coldness felt made her come undone

 

I said Hey what have you done

I said hey yeah hey what have you done

 

Husband noticed some strange behavior

Rancid meat in the refrigerator

Psychosis calls to everyone

Writing sevens on the wall

Curiosity

Looking out from the inside

I find where to begin

Keep up on the outside

And letting them sneak on in

 

You’ve got your business

You’ve got your pride

But it ain’t gonna help you

With what you feel inside

 

Curiosity makes the best go down

Curiosity is going on in the town

 

People tell me they walk on by

Some give me a passing glance

Some stop and loo...

He'll Make America Great Again


America
Don't give that man your tears today
Though it's dark now you'll find a way
Now is the time to laugh, sing and create
Throw the bile back at his tangerine face
I call on the punks, the poets, the artists, the revolutionaries and the visionaries, don't let the spark be snuffed out in vain
Come together and show him how you'll make yourself great again

Typical

Another moist, reluctant sunrise
through the night sweat morning dew
emancipated
the worm pushed towards the light
loosely erect

Across the lawn
the over stuffed pigeon
puffed up her unkempt plumage
cooed a taunt
How dare you wake up today
How dare you show that you tried today

Waddling heavily
she pinched him up
gluttony oozing
heaved him away
apatheticaly consenting to his fate

Vows

One sparked up a fresh Richmond under the glow of the heat lamp, the other puffed away on a menthol grape vape that scented the shelter.

The stubborn silence was broken with an offhand comment on the rain. He smirked, snorted and agreed but still seemed out of the moment.

Another heavy drag on the dark blue electric fag in his hand

Through thick and thin, for better or for worse, in sickn...

The Caveman

We had an argument
not a big all guns blazin’ my mother was right about you argument
just a silly one
that made me regress
retreat to my cave
where I consulted with the great oracle YouTube
he slid over his recommendations

For Peace & For Pride

On two summer days
in 1945
199,000
men
women
children
were casualties of Hell itself embodied on Earth
the pride of a foreign power
raised cities to ashes
scorched shadows into the soil
all
for peace

Between October 1962
and November 1983
the World faced exinction
day to day
minute to minute
all for the sake of
the pride of two foreign powers 

On July 18th 2016

Her, Love

I’m here to tell you
that she is

My Jamia
My Adrienne
My Lyn-Z

My Sally
My Morticia
My April
My Pam

My stars in the cold black night
My punk rock Queen

She’s a rebel
She’s a riot
She’s a muse

And I’ll always wear her heart proudly on my sleeve
because
her love is my energy
her love is my gasoline

and we’re burning bright.

Swayed On The Knife Edge

I held my breath taut
as she swayed on the knife edge
arms calming dipping, rising
dignified reslilience 
I blew her my love and fell to sleep

as father turned on son

as daughter turned on mother

as neighbour turned on neighbour

as she fell

A Tale Of Reincarnation

6th December

Sunday

Leeds

There was a monk
well, a former monk
and he was handing out free cups of tea
to passers-by
As he did he spoke of
Great Energies
Oneness
and letting go of material possessions.

I took him up on his offer and we conversed
but then he asked me about my job
and I ashamedly admitted that I felt down
because
I work for a corporation
but he held me in a s...

Saturday Night Thursday Morning

Saturday night, family gathered around the TV
a small feast of pizza and chips waiting for BGT, Xfactor or Strictly
across the nation, we get sucked into this circus reality, our eyes transfixed and rigid as a mass of drones,
our fingers and thumbs hovering over Facebook and Twitter on our smartphones
we’ve all followed  the stories and campaigns from week zero,
gripped our sofa arms as The A...

On seeing John Cooper Clarke @ Wakefield Theatre Royal (29/9/13)

 

Johnny Clarke, Johnny Clarke

a walking bag of bones

staggers out onto the stage

like Keith Richards from the Stones

rapid, machine gun delivery

sprays audience with Salford tones

jitters, jives, ducks and dives

whilst wrestling with the micr...
