If we can’t forgive

If we can’t forgive

We can’t carry on

We hold on to hurt

We would like to be gone

James Lott Jr you have been roasted

.

I know a guy

Funny as hell

James lott jr

Out of his shell

.

In the jungle

His garden in LA

He wants a roast

Time to play

.

It’s hot over there

A lot of sun

He works so much

He’s lost his buns

.

He’s a leftie

Weird is that

He don’t like scissors

He likes to act

.

He sings to himself

Too old too fat

What a sick beat

Too loud too black

.

Masked singer is in town

Where has he gone

They unmask the winner

James has won

.

He is a taurus

He’s always sipping tea

The cool cuddly hunk

Happy as can be

.

Now in his garden

Tending his flowers

He’s got green fingers

What super powers

.

What did I say

About this super man

Look at him jump

He is the man!

depression · Life · managing depression

This clouded feeling

I can’t put my finger on it

Why I feel so down

This clouded feeling

That’s hanging around

I feel almost sick

But I don’t know why

I haven’t even got

Any appetite

I can’t control my emotions

So angry in my heart

Can’t pull it from me

I don’t know which path

How can I escape

From this torturous hell?

Is there an escape?

Is it a closed shell?

Its vice like grip

Constantly on me

Oh how I wish

I could be free

To breathe deeply

Clean virgin air

To stop suffocating

To fight the despair

Does happiness exist?

Will I feel it one day?

Or am I in hell hotel

Destined to stay?

The half that completes me

I miss you when you’re not here.

It’s all so quiet without you near.

I miss how we talk, how we get on.

Making you coffee, having a sing song.

Our little regards, our little lovers tiffs.

My forgetfulness, our lovers bliss.

You make me who I am, me to you too.

Our explosive couple, just us two.

At the end of the day you know how I feel.

I love you babe and always will.

Saving the snake in the flames

A man saw a snake

Surrounded by flames

He tried to help it

Bitten and in pain

.

The man dropped the snake

Back into the fire

He looked around him

His courage to be admired

.

He found a metal bar

The snake wrapped around

He placed the bar down

Carefully to the ground

.

A passer by saw his act

Questioning why he helped

“The snake’s instinct is to bite”

“But I just had to help”

.

We hardly kiss goodbye

Talk to me softly

I can’t remember the last time

We had an intimate moment

Or shared a bottle of wine

To smile and laugh together

To hang on each others word

All this wanting

May seem to be obsurd

We just need a little attention

To spark the match again

To go back to like before

When we were still friends

But all that being lost now

As we hardly kiss goodbye

All the time thinking

Why it is like this? Why?

Colin the crocodile

.

Colin the crocodile

Look at that lovely smile

Swimming in your muddy swamp

Looking for something to chomp

With your tough prickly skin

And that little mischievous grin

Ooohhh have you found something

He so likes when he wins

There is one thing this croc would like

Is to leave the swamp and take his bike

For a charming ride watching the trees

Legs in the air shouting WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
