Dead Man's Shoes - Poem by Neil Solan

I've earned me another pain,
I've earned me another tin roof in the rain,
I've earned me another stone in my shoe,
I've earned me another you.

I've earned me another feather,
I've earned me a new chevron, and the sinew I sever,
I've earned me another reason to wear dead men's shoes,
I've earned me another you.

I've earned me another sleeping tide,
I've earned me another split in the side,
I've earned me another deranged coo,
I've earned me another you.
