DEALS ON WHEELS

entry picture

Scheming, thieving, scumbag bumentry picture

Smack head, crack head, someone’s son

A knife, a life, a dealer’s gun

Only mugs do drugs and call it fun

 

There’s ‘H’, 'Meow' and rocks of 'Crack'

There’s ‘E’s and ‘Speed’ and ‘Blow’

There’s ‘Browns’ and ‘Blues’, a bag of ‘Smack’

So cool and good to go

 

Come get your fix, it’s such a must

Steal the money from your Mum

Your Dad’s away and he’s not fussed

With a telly in his Strangeways slum

 

Like a rat that leaves a sinking ship

Just  an addict wanting one more trip

Every night his Mother cries out loud

For the Son that used to make her proud

 

Scheming, thieving, scumbag bum

Smack head, crack head, someone’s son

A knife, a life, a dealer’s gun

Only mugs do drugs and call it fun

Loved it. Poetry shouldn't just be pretty words put together in a row. There's truth in that piece. Loved it.

Nice to see you placing words on the page again Daniel. This rolls off the tongue quite nicely, feels almost like a song. Good one

Oh I don't know, I've always been rather partial to alternative realities. There are good reasons why people indulge, and most of them really do revolve around them being absolutely ace fun :)

One of the worst drugs is of course alcohol. In terms of fatalities, illness/disease, and addiction, its impact is terrifying. And in every corner shop lurks temptation.
