An Autumn Evening
Too Young to Die

I woke up with this inside my head.
Leaving the public home
I realise that I am all alone
In front of me are thugs
Iím beaten and Iím mugged, as
They relieve me of my cash
I didnít feel the knife, my head
Lands with a crash, thatís
Left me contorted, feeling distorted
Fighting for my life
Oh dear, oh dear what do
I tell my wife? I was meant
To buy a curry, she wanted
It in a hurry, everything looks
So blurry, the snow flurry is
In a hospital bed, a tourniquet
Around my head, my wife thought
I was dead, so much is left unsaid
The bedpost doesnít make
A good host, itís telling me
That Iím toast, a conversation
Engrossed, I threaten to make
It a whipping post, as I become a ghost

|Andy, you found this inside your head my friend, a. Perish the thought. This evening before retiring sip an extra glass of wine. It will turn your nightmare into amorous dreams. Sleep tight my dear friend. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael|
