London, July 2010

July 9, 2010

The distance that separates us

The distance that separates us
It makes me much more creative
Restraint is for academics
I’m but a painted jester
The city destroys your worthy
While con men strive for perfection
It isn’t that good for comfort
The cynics all get promoted

I pass a ship in a bottle
Its  sea is frozen in danger
And Nelson stands on his column
Surrounded by sweat and tourists
O brave and sagacious admiral
Who wielded men like a rapier
Did you ever walk through SoHo
Surrounded by iPod music?

    Thank you. The ship in the bottle is standing on the north-west pillar on Trafalgar Square at the moment…
