Rookie - 519 Points (JUNE 7 1964 / ABERDEEN)


Just imagine
a world where everything
goes wrong,

war, famine,
people shooting
people shooting

'Can I have the word 'ask',
pleeze! ',

'just the one? '

yes because it must
be worth something,
because I hear so little
of it...and precious
is that little bitty word,
pretending to sleep,

I don't want to,
don't corner me into
saying what I have to,
which is not what I want,

useless is the stuff
that I am made up of,

a male who goes to work
accumulates money,
and the great big muscle
tries all kinds of ways,
to define itself...

you are nothing, a creep,
a ******* sheep in the dark,
as seconds rip your brain open,
like an old rusty tin,

we are full of beans
and together I suppose,
you could say we're all
quite mean - really?


really ...really...really...

head butt the mirror,
blood & glitter,
glam shrapnel,
crack that halo -


ask - how much did you
pay for that,

I mean as deep down,
as you alone might go...

don't...don't put me
through it,

I'm hiding, can't you see...

confronted useless portion,
breathing in the dark air

devoted! (glare)

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
