my bed

not unnaturally beside myself
quitened a little by company and music
my memories of the past are fragmentary
I'm shaking - violent spasms - breathless -
can feel the jacket tied around my arms
my time is coming can't get out of the bed
beautiful nurses patronisingly smiling
thinking about their boyfriends

I made my choice - to lie here!
all along I knew where I was going
they'll hang for this now the noose is around my neck
quiet country retreat I never managed to reach
they play their songs now mine have finished
another generation another elect another damned.
