The Wreck


I'm staring down at the scene bewildered and shattered

The blackness covers me, somewhere amongst the wreckage

A wheel is spinning like a tribute to my favourite pop group

There seems to be some technical hitch with the speakers, but...

Will it be the Stones or the Beatles, or just the 'Last Time'

A body twisted raw like sinews in a butcher's shop

My soul prays in anger at this conquest against my privileges

My rights and freedom are this night taken away.

A thousand candles light up the night sky, echoing around

My metal cartouche, I speak to them in words of silence

That only I understand

I see a broken body torn, battered and bruised, lying unmoving and motionless

I see a life drifting away, but behind me I see wonderful things.
