NOOSE

VOLUNTARY ASPHYXIATION…

TO PUT YOUR HEAD IN THERE,

AND TENDERLY SWING,

IN HOMAGE TO YOUR DEAD BROTHER.

AND YOU WAIT FOR THE BLACKOUT,

YOU WAIT FOR THE NOTHING,

BUT IT DOESN’T COME…

BECAUSE YOU SAVED YOURSELF.

THERE IS A PAIN WORSE THAN GRIEF,

THE NOT KNOWING WHAT MIGHT BE,

THE STORY INCOMPLETE…

SO I PLAYED IT OUT!

AND NOW,FORTY FIVE YEARS ALONG,

DO I REGRET THE CHANGE OF MIND?

ITS IN MY KHARMA,

I HAD TO PLAY OUT MY LINES.

I HAVE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN,

I HAD A BEAUTIFUL BELOVED,

I’VE HAD AS MUCH OF A LIFE,

AS I COULD MUSTER.

SO I GUESS IT’S NO REGRETS.

THIS IS BASICALLY TRUE.

DALE  ‘M’
