“Most people can survive a disappointment,
a broken heart, a bit of bad luck!”
He explained with a thoughtful look
upon his dirty, worn-out face.
“It’s when it comes in three’s
with the force of Thor’s Hammer
you know that you are in trouble.
The first one’s the sucker punch,
‘The Tower’ of the tarot pack
and whilst you are still spinning
the second blow cripples something
deep inside that you didn’t really know
that you had inside until you felt it broken.
The third, that’s the finisher, life in prison,
F-ward permanently or complete obliteration
of everything warm and caring, forever.
I’ve been a Vagrant now nigh on ten years
and I’m one of the lucky ones in life
yet on most days I’d wholeheartedly disagree!”
