Honesty and fabrications
All that glitters can’t be good
Smiles, tears and accusations
Tell a kind of truth no one understood

I live in a hole in the ground
Above live the germs. Happy germs.
They play football most days
In empty stadiums
Mostly though
They can get on your nerves
They knock on my door uninvited
Chanting songs of imaginary guilt
Songs no one needs to know

I’d been hoping
In my forever hole
My neighbours
Were rabbits
Maybe badgers
Definitely not ants
But mainly they are rats
Fat rats, in smart suits
Making money out of politics
And screwing up people’s lives

Next door in the tower
Lives an overfed woodlice
He asked me if I had a gun
I told him I didn’t do guns
But I do climb fences OK
He speaks a lot
But doesn’t say much
He doesn’t like the blackbirds
And the best thing is
They don’t like him

Honesty and fabrications
All that glitters can’t be good
Smiles, tears and accusations
Tell a kind of truth no one understood

  1. Hi George, a lonely and sad lyric, so appropriate, well done! It has been an empty year for sure. Do the rats just keep getting fatter? There’s a great photo, please google “Lee Miller rats”, taken in Paris 1930. I think you’ll like it. Super quote, thank goodness for dreams. Are we out of time??? Wishing you well, please have a creative Wednesday. ~ Mia

    1. Thanks, Mia. I had a look at the rats. Sat like that, they remind me of old fashion Victorian door knobs. It’s a powerful pic. I see what you mean. I think this empty year wears a mask to keep creativity away. I’ve pretty much everything anyone could want to make music but it’s not happening how I want it. I keep thinking of what I heard someone – probably an artist but I’m not sure – say, “These are the days when inanimate objects die.” I like that. Have a great day ~ George

      1. JGC, glad you had a look at Lee’s photo. Powerful and quite lucky to be in the moment to have captured the image. Also, a powerful statement. How crushing it must be that even inanimate objects pass away. (A painful picture.) Next do they pass from our awareness and/or then from our consciousness, the ability of discerning fact from creative self-imposed fact? My mind has been wandering in contemplation a lot, and not so much in a direction that I particularly like. Many questions, most are unanswered. Mass scale isolation, apologies, a rather unpleasant thought. On a brighter note, I want to wish you a good rest of your day. ~ Mia

    1. Thank you for reading and listening, Resa. Everything I write/do is me. Glad you liked it. For once the old man liked it. That’s rare. We’re all hoping he gets his mind and body back to be himself again soon. Thanks again ~ George

      1. I figured your blog was all original, at least 99.9%. I think I saw a small Mick Jagger? quote.
        OMG! Haven’t been to you dad’s blog for awhile. Last he was going on vacay in the back yard. Been waiting for him to come by, and let me know he’s back.
        I’ll go check it out soon.
