We live alone.
We die alone.
It is the natural state of things.
There is no need to fret about it.
Those seemingly close, will see out our end.
When we die it is with no regrets
Our life force extinguished.
We need to have lived out our life,
To the full, to the brim,
From our central hearts core.
Nothing is more important, nothing more !!

Once we were the dirty foreigners
Reaching for support
Smashed by war, people indifferent,
looking the other way
Betrayed by nations, hindering not helping
Exploited by the scum of the earth
Yes, once we were those dirty foreigners
In the name of no religion
Pray for us
Pray for the senseless killing in Paris
for the barbarous killing in Beirut
for the slaught...

I hate speed
Licence to kill, not a thrill
There is no need, for any kind of speed
Wanker Bankers thrive on it
Arrogant tossers delight in it
Put them on a treadmill to charge batteries
Take away their car keys for life
Coppers should set an example
Instead of speeding at every opportunity
One law for them, another for the lower orders
Cars are murderous machines...

Singing the same old song, We get by, we get along, Not too many quarrels, Gotta keep the peace, Sometimes wishing for a war, It would be a relief. This dull life, dogs dinner of a day, What to do to make the blues wash away This must be what any murderers are thinking, No beer for the drinking, No pot for the smoking, No religion for the ...

Some Poets and Artists
Are good at their craft
but lack humility and humanity
Some politicians are crafty
but are monsters of egoism
and never keep their promises
Who is to assess who is good or bad
Who out there can play God
Everybody has moments of brilliance
Everybody can be a hero,
not a zero
Some advance themselves
at the expense of others

Wisdom is ageless
Some people have it
Learn to listen
capturing the wisdom around you
Learn to respect
those that have it
Some don't get it
Some live their whole lives
in their own stew
without a clue
WHICH ONE ARE YOU????
Just because you are
old and grumpy
doesn't mean you
don't have it
whatever IT means

Lets go fracking
Fracking here, Fracking there,
these frackers are fracking everywhere.
Wherever you look, frackers have took.
No Small is Beautiful for them
But big and Bullshitty.
No room for real people, real mem,
but Banksters and Selservatives,
thet's what we call these fracking conservatives,
with their tools the policemen

Dear arsehole, you holy mother of shit,
I'm up your creek without a paddle,
I've had my head up there a few times,
Holy arsehole, I love you,
All hail dear arsehole, all hail holy arsehole, all hail dear arsehole

Now see here Mr Putin, or should we call you Rasputin,
I'm not disputin with you Mr Putin, or you'll take me over,
Next stop Moldova.
But I'm spittin, when I hear Putin
I'm spittin when I hear Putin.
Killin people in Crimea, Georgia,
Supplying arms to Syria,
Where do you get off Mr Putin,
Mr Hard Man Putin.
You pussy riot jailer,
with the hide of a whaler.
