A Very Sad Man

By 16th December 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

He is a very sad man, who
Does nothing all day.
His family is out of reach,
And his friends have gone away.
Torment is his companion…
And a bottle of …whatever it takes.

He does not speak to anyone…
And he does not care
To listen…but he sees and hears
Things which are not there…
Like a horror movie inserted
Into his mind…against his will.

He is a very sad man…
A very sad man is he.
It was not always so…
Once he was a happy
Individual, full of life and
Dreams and ambition…

Until, to the Government
He made his contribution.
And that was when his life was ended…
It might have been better had it not begun…
Only it had…
And so now…he is very sad.
