What's Happened Is Happening

You tell me life goes on and

Mine has. The cogs are turning,

The wheels are spinning but I want

To find a branch and thrust it

Between the spokes. I want

To be thrown in the air,

To land in puddles of mud and tears.

Yes, normal service has resumed 

But I've been left on the platform whilst

Some silhouette sits in First Class,

Sipping Champagne on his way from A to B.

  1. Leonard Cohen

    You got away, didn’t you babe?
    You just turned your back on the crowd
    You got away
    I never once heard you say
    “I need you, I don’t need you
    I need you, I don’t need you”.
    And all of that jiving around.
