polar opposite to a life of contentment

ousted from the party

this only led to a life of resentment 

self-induced heartbreak and pain

don’t get me wrong 

we are all privileged to be here

just if the big axe keeps swinging 

something’s gonna give 

and in steps mental fragility 

call it what you will

a lot of floodwater has gone 

under the bridge

the tools might be in the box

but there’s only mould in the fridge 

if I was a betting man

I’d place my bet

on a program that highlights the bad times 

then simply you click to forget

trying to remember what it was

I was thinking yesterday 

that had me feeling 

better with the world 

and with me in therein

but I didn’t get any further 

than that

life keeps doing this 

like a cat with its plaything

keep taking chances only to fail them

suppose I was lucky 

to ever known love 

in a word it was only ever disappointment 

slugs playing with each other 

leaving sticky lines

it broke my shell

a near fatal blow

a lot of floodwater has gone 

under the bridge

the tools might be in the box

but there’s mould in the fridge 

if I was a betting man

I’d place my bet

on a program that highlights the bad times 

then you click to forget
