The race through life has become more of an amble

a gamble that all the bad shit might get credited out

by Karma and a little help from pharmaceuticals

Compassion you see is no longer the fashion

for high heeled boots and fancy suits

and kindness that’s rationed in the war years

There’s a sprinkling of peace and love

and above all else you realise

that there are no winners or losers

 Just false promises made in boozers

I'm Scottish but I live in New Zealand ! I write stories and poetry. My dog Charlie is a great sounding board.
