Island brew

Not going out
it’s Friday
what’s going on?
is it not about
what’s on?

Minding my own
staying at home
the radio’s on
there’s a beer by
my side
watching myself as
I slide
deeper and deeper
nearer and nearer
to the end of an era.

Look at the facts
like attracts like
I like being lonesome
minding my own
some of the facts
are fictions.

Not going out?
like that’s going to happen
not when it’s happening
out there
