You’re irresistible

And just there’s your problem

Or having flinched return
To that from which one flinched
And emerge emboldened

They hover all round us
Tell me you don’t feel them
Be trusting, be open
But be nobody’s fool

WIELDING THE FORCE

Jobsworths* and Presidents

*Brazen: Unrestrained by a sense of shame; rudely bold.

Casualty (A Four By Six)

Futures already gone
No longer remembered
Those unforgettables

Another afternoon
Mislaid and forgotten
Let’s go to the pictures
Enjoy a phantasy

Lost Souls (A Four By Six)

LOST SOULS

You find them everywhere
Ignorant, arrogant
Deadly combination
Take care you don’t join them
