Confusion

By Jonas Robinson

Remember the ghost
Dreaming in your sleep
Next to you - In your bed
Making love to you

Fantasy or rape
The naked ape

Remember all the swords
And faces of the sheilds
Protecting us from the Lords
As we battle in the feilds

Drunk or asleep
Shadows weep

Bleeding through the blinds
The sun rise - The dead skies
Wondering where I've been
A half cigar and an empty bottle of gin
