Poetry















A dangerous man










I’ve always been a bit above the law

But that’s quite common when you grow up poor.


I loved in such a disorganised way

And now the state is coming after me.


They say I nearly killed my son

And am a danger to the other one.


And because I settled down to keep them safe

They have me, for I compromised for love.


These days it seems a man can’t see his boys

What with bad women and the state of lawyers.


But don’t feel bad for me, I have a home

And have my life’s love now, the second time.


Chorus:

But when they tell you, my lost one that I

Was a dangerous man

Never believe that a thing meant more than

You, my boys, than you


And persecuted, damned by all the fools

Who took over this place and made the rules


I’ll leave and in the end of time or the end

Of this decaying place, I’ll be around


I’ll still be here when all the lies are quiet

And we will be alright.


Chorus:

But when they tell you, my lost one that I

Was a dangerous man

Never believe that a thing meant more than

You, my boys, than you
