This song is shit

05 Jun

Busted

Broken,

Shattered

Damaged…

Call it what you want to,

It all becomes so easily unmanaged.

 

The strength and courage is slain

validating the damage that cannot be undone,

pummeled like an orchid in a torrent rain

or bent out of shape, a vinyl record left in the sun.

 

You can certainly attempt to forgive

but in no way, will or can you forget,

all in all for as long as you may live

forever twisted like a radio-eaten cassette.

    Loved this. But I kept hearing in my head Janis Joplin singing it to the tune of “Me and Bobby McGee” ✌️🎸.
