Our first meeting, you talked shillings, I spoke pounds.
Saddened by what had happened to you, your life
now full of strife, at the thought of being found, and
bound by the contract.
Bereft of your home and possessions
Have we not learnt our lessons?
Troubled by the tide of information
lack of explanation, of who, what, where, and when?
No one to spare a minute: Limited to breakfast, lunch and toilet charts.
Someone please have a heart and tell me why?
I will try to keep to your schedule
If I cause too much trouble: Will you send me back?
Back to my worn out shell; a place that you thought was hell.
But where I knew my shillings
And never spoke of pounds.
