In the rain,
In the wind,
And the cold,
At the end of the street
There’s a beating heart.

backstreet_graffiti_400In every street,
In every avenue
And every corner
Of this city
There’s a beating heart:
Living with love,
Without love
Without hope,
Without god,
With god.

Cynical and cold;
Smoking, drinking
Fucking, whoring
Feeling nothing,
Drowning in debts,
In money,
In materialism
And the nine to five,
Tick-tock time bombs
Exploding into the
Black nothingness
Of space and time.

Numbed
By foaming beer,
Scotch, wine,
Coke, tits, ass,
Mortgages,
Brexit, EU,
Trump, Jihad, death,
Global warming,
Two kids and
The wife.

We live in the cold
Bitter days of lost
Hope and glory,
Mediocrity
And the death
Of the intellectual;
The forgotten
Age of man.
