More of the same.

Free Love

I was once so poor

I was reduced to smoking

Old dead flies off the floor.

 

They didn’t contain any

Nicotine, but filled my lungs

And were free of cost.

 

Now I’m so poor I dream of you

As I can’t afford a

Real love anymore

All hope of love is lost.

Yeah well, it is a metaphor for loss of love and poverty. Thanks for your kind response. I'm listening to The Smiths tonight. A Northern band who my daughter Stella loves. Things are going well for a change, despite the rain and death threats. She won't kill me, despite her hatred of me. I fell in love with a new woman called Misty tonight online. Things are looking up. I feel a change coming.
All the best,
Craig.

Surprisingly emotional, Craig. Nothing like the image of smoking dead flies!

I do have my moments of emotion, Hullabaloo22, despite my eternal cynicism. It's a guise and how I survive emotionally after ten years of solitude and loneliness. I have my cat, Tom Tom. Better than nothing.
You know what I mean,
All the best,
Craig.
