Big in New West

Screen grabs


That time I googled how to torrent... 

In Shorkey we trust...

You left your mark
the lack of lakes and parks
is evident
the rent is high
round here
but it's falling
the nightly news
and twitter rants
keep us all
ill informed
and hell bent
a course of disaster
the tuition is tears
but there's a pub
in which to drown your fears
throwing craze on the way home
you dream of roaming freely again
it's your friends who have grown old
or is it you?
listening to talk radio
and yelling at the ether
and whoever will listen
nobody these days, it seems
Like TV without commercials
you wouldn't recognise it
and you would learn to despise it
and loathe it
like you did
where it all began.
And now it's the oil that decides
and takes us all for a ride
in the dark
with the headlights turned off

Left breathless and feeling restless
all the while, relentless
apprenticeship of pointless regressions 
A nation and a city tell the tale
the tickets are cheap but the price of fuel is astronomical
like the stars and cars
we are on fire
with our lipstick and low profile tires
reality TV sets the gold standard
at least it's something to talk about around the water cooler
at work
I do like a good beer and a good sunset though
And colours. 
Lots of colours 
I hate the fucking morning commute.
