“Where can I find peace and happiness?
It’s not where it was last time.”
“I found this empty can of loneliness
Buried among the full cans of energy.
Somebody must have supped it
Then put it back.”
“I want the fresh bread of life but all you’ve got are out of date.”
“It’s still ok to eat, Sir. This is “best before”.
“This crisp packet of comfort just split open.”
“I’ll put that here, love. Go and get another one.”
