World-slide

Enjoy yourself on benefits
Please take a seat
Turn up the sound a bit
I hope you have some heat
Is it beans on toast again?
An old teapot brew
Holes in your socks to mend
Nothing more to do

Sitting in the living room
You call it a living, do you?
Bills spilled out into the street
People saying screw you
Sitting in the armchair
It’s just another day
Sit and watch the street outside
As the world slides away
Sit and watch the world slide away

I just had the words “world slide” in my head and added a few things from personal life. I kind of imagined a poor old man in the north of England rather than myself a kind of Elanor Rigby thing

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
