Someone I’ve known for over a decade recently passed away. They were a colleague and a friend. Although I would question whether I was as good a friend as I could have been when they needed it.

Retribution – Part 2

Part 1

Finding out that my daughter had died was the worst moment of my life. Finding out how was the beginning of the end.

Musical Poetry #1: The View From The Afternoon

The View From The Afternoon – Arctic Monkeys, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what’s gone before
 
I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
Of course it’s fancy dress
And they’re all looking quite forlorn in bunny ears and devil horns and how
 
Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what’s gone before
I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
I wanna see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You’ve got to understand that you can never beat the bandit, no
 
And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that is said is that you’ve drank a lot
 
And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind, yeah
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind
 
And you can pour your heart out
For a reason it would block
Oh, you send her after nine o’clock
 
Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what’s gone before
 
And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that is said is that you’ve drank a lot
 
And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind, yeah
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind
 
And you can pour your heart out
Around three o’clock
When the two-for-ones undone the writer’s block
