Ballina

laios01_400_03I waited on the
Side of the road lying
In a body bag next
To the dead children;
They thought I was dead,
Or was dead for several minutes.

I can still see the face of
That blonde girl hands
Clinging to the windscreen
Looking at me with a blank stare
Calm and serene before the impact,
Twenty minutes before Liz was playing
With my cock like a gear stick listening
To the Bangles on the radio.

14th July 14:55, bang,
Dead, twelve dead, dead,
I was dead, was I dead?
Ten children dead like rag dolls
Lined up on the side of the road
Like rubbish waiting to
Be collected and disposed,
That's life I suppose.

Ballina, I'll never
Forget you, you
Made me immortal
That day, I can still
See the blank stare
Of the blonde girl,
She haunts my dreams,
I feel guilty somehow.
