Broken promises

kick out as they get stupid
whilst you sacrifice their brains
financing all that’s needed
to have your wicked way
and later when the air is clear
and no one left can speak
what lead us to this other place
where all that’s left is drink?
anaesthetised to action
by playing simple rules
at least we’ll learn to hate again
taught well by imbeciles

About Roy Smith

Roy Smith lives in the Medway Towns, where he works with young people and spends a lot of time writing nonsense and enjoying himself. Most of his writing happens at night and other inconvenient moments, when he is regularly interrupted by his dog and the desire to play old video games.
