NOTHING CAN’T BE FIXED

A Blues Poem and companion piece to ‘Left Hand Path’.


NOTHING CAN’T BE FIXED

Well I’ve been knocked down, strung out, slept out on the street,
pushed to the limit by everyone I meet.
Still I wake to Sunshine, blue skies, and a head full of songs,
hoping I can right all my sorry wrongs.

Now I’ve been a drunkard, a user, I’ve seen the river Styx,
know now ain’t nothing can’t be fixed.
I’ve walked a fine line, knife edge, took what I could get,
til’ all I’m feeling is a bitter regret.

Spare me time, listen to me well,
so my sad story you can tell.
Fill your life with love and good,
as I would now if only I could.

I kept my distance, a cold lover, I broke so many hearts,
used words like stinging poison darts,
always playing poker, a cheater, forever on the make,
ready to steal just for stealing’s sake.

And now I’m an old man, a loner, seen the error of my ways,
shame its taken til my last dying days.
I’m trying my best, there’s still time, for me to make amends
so the Man above,for me his Angels sends.

Spare me time, listen to me well,
so my sad story you can tell.
Fill your life with love and good,
as I would now if only I could.

    1. Thank you Roland, it was originally lyrics for a song I wrote for friends. I’ve been playing with form today hence the song, Tyburn and Rondelet. I recall our discussion with Davy on the subject and today I’ve suddenly got an insight into the merit of strict form poetry. Though I had to tease and work things out the end result was unique and suddenly appeared like magic, very much like a genre of music just hits the spot (or not).
