There are always the ghost stations that play on in your mind
the ale house of drunkards,
the channels you find when you look at the ghosts in your mind.

the lying deceivers
the truth
the believers
the inlet and outlet
things to remember and
more to forget
nothing is harsher and
nothing as kind
when you switch on the
stations that play
in your mind,

ghosts to remind us we mustn’t forget.

The time bomb is ticking
take your stock and
I’m
sticking
on twenty one.
