E lucidation


Give me some Tramadol
Panadol
a laxative
a fixative
just 
give me some peace.

Give me a new lease on life
a wife
a home
a new hip
(just thought that I’d slip that one in)

Oh Christ on the cross
how do I live with the loss 
how does one start
when the heart has been shattered
and what does it matter?

Let me be drip fed on a bed
and out of my head
give me indemnity
against
whatever I’ve said or am likely to say
Give me
Today.
