Unshaven in Spitzbergen

If suddenly it could have all happened differently
would you still want things to change?

Is it better the demons you know or
the promises of terrors to come?

Never satisfied and he died unsatisfied,
‘unsatisfactory’ was his
valedictory.

The telephone rang twice but it was a wrong number.
if I had not answered it the chances are
it would still have been a wrong number.
