make your own jam sandwiches

thought you’d be the saving of me

wrong

like a vampire coming for tea

let you in

‘I’m a man now you listen to me’

said the boy 

so carelessly


you raised your fists

up to me

you were like

somebody else’s son

draw a line in the sand

where the boy becomes a man

no more teenage privileges

make your own jam sandwiches


blue in the face

you’re nothing to me

told you everything

much like a threat y’see

you raised your fists

up to me

you were like

somebody else’s son

draw a line in the sand

where the boy becomes a man

no more teenage privileges

make your own jam sandwiches
