Shouldve Kept Your Distance


Somethings gone wrong
now i know whats going on
theres a place i need to be
theres some1 i need to see
theres suspicion in the air
theres some things that should be cleared
if im there....there will be hell
and i may end up in jail
but its for a serious cause
dont give a futz about the law

If they dont keep their distance
ill make sure theyre gone
before they use their senses
shouldve listened to my warning
shouldve never came back
couldve walked away....
but they didnt.....they chose to stay......

i wont need reinforcements
im not there....i guess i do
there wont be conversations
when i get there theyll be through
they couldve thought this out
but instead they just refused
and when theyre taken out
ill just be here.....amused

If they dont keep their distance
ill make sure theyre gone
before they use their senses
shouldve listened to my warning
shouldve never came back
couldve walked away....
but they didnt.....they chose to stay

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
