Poetry – Who could understand you?

Who could understand you?


The kings of experience they all did decide

To tie you to the rocks where the fat angels glide;

To feed you with bitumen and take you for a ride,

But just how far can they take you?


The grime-faced politicians all did smile

As they dressed you in plastic and walked you down the aisle

Past the concrete pillars painted with their bile

Who among them could ever reach you?


And you dreamed of castles, dragons and princes

As they fastened you to the block and began with the pincers

The hangman laughs as he studies you and winces

What news could they ever extract from you?


Innocent lady of the shopping mall

With a head full of brightly coloured cotton wool

Could anyone ever understand you?
