Stephen Loomes (21ST JUNE 1950 / SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA)
When I Wake Up
When I wake up I have a dazed pee
And wander out to make a cup of tea
While the kettle boils, I lean on the sink
A little stunned I wait for my brain to think
I can stare at nothing for minutes; I am inert
Just looking out at nothing
I am sure it doesn't hurt
And then the kettle bubbles
I put tea into the pot
Turn on the radio for the days' troubles
Then wish that I had not.
I wish peace on earth for all out there
If only my power to grant it
Was equal to my care.
