14 Aug 2013: Etude for August
“Let me be your father”, said the pain,
“Let me be your big brother”
“And all this will be just a bovver,”
“A smallish sacrifice on the floor.”
If I let you be my father, said I,
If I let you be my brother,
Will I then live forever?
No, said the pain, no no no it said
Get that idea out of your head
If you let me be your father
It will just feel like it
It will just feel like forever
And between you and me
Welcome to eternity.
