Robert Sheridan


Battered


Been persistently beaten/pounded repeatedly
Down one dirty road/coast-to-coast
Damaged area/beneath the skin
Done by those swinging the bat/bad intent
Sugar coated/slope of the deface
Hurricane in disguise/mutilated by a razor
Thrown into the mix/battered and fried
Email; IM/waiting for the phone to ring
Dating’s a farce/more like a semi-liquid
Certainly made a dent/ill-winds intent
Brings you down/reduced and deprived
Need to abate a nuisance/abate a writ
No more negligent touching/position withdrawn
What goes around comes around/saying goodbye.
