My Cigarette, My Friend

I've got a bit of sinus
My throat's a little bit dry
My lungs are a little bit wheezy
But I'm not going to cry

All my teeth have been stained yellow
My fingers and nails too
Some say it's the cigarettes I smoke
They say that they accrue

I think that that is an outright lie
No, cigarettes do me no harm
They are my very best friends
To me they have lots of charm

Do you want me to explain it
All the benefits that fags give to me
Well, where do you want me to start?
I'll tell you the lot, from A to B

Firstly, there is the advantage
Of having to buy them everyday
It puts order in your life
And makes sure that you won't stray

Then, of course, each time you smoke one
Your withdrawal pangs disappear
Not for very long, mind you
But you'll have another, have no fear

Now cigarette butts, that's a tough one
I can't seem to find an advantage there
Maybe just the satisfaction of ridding myself of them
Getting those nasty things out of my hair

So when they bury me in the ground
And place my gravestone up above
I'd like for them to put on it
I died for my cigarette friends, with love

- Bronwyn's Birthday: : Humour

It's Bronwyn's birthday today, her age has upped a notch
That's OK as long as on her wrinkles you don't keep watch
The spider veins, liver spots, grey hairs poking through
Are signs that on this earth, Bronwyn is not so new

She's been around a bit, done childhood and all that stuff
Now she's not exactly old and I wouldn't say her meat is tough
She could probably still dance all night if that would take her fancy
But she doesn't, because her hip and knee, well they are a little chancy

Still cook a delicious meal, she can, and wash up all the dishes
Although I'm not so sure that it's one of her greatest wishes
Sat up cosy reading a great book, now we're getting closer
So I just hope that the rest of her life, she makes the very most'er

(Sydney, Australia - 2008)

- GTKY : : Humour

Hi, how are you? What’s your name?
We’re playing a GTKY kind of game
What on earth does GTKY stand for?
Getting To Know You, can you please tell us more

How long have you lived here? Where are you from?
I’ve lived here 10 years and I come from a kingdom
A tiny principality of a hundred people or fewer
Our chief export there is three humped camel manure

Oh really, that’s fascinating, I never would have guessed
That three humped camel manure was one of the best
Oh but it is, it’s expensive, it’s worth more than gold
It contains a special ingredient, that’s what I’ve been told

If you smear it on your face, your wrinkles will disappear
I do it myself every day, have been doing it for years
But your face is covered in wrinkles, covered in splotches
You believed my story, ha ha, I gotcha

- Perception: : Humour, Inspiration

If you have a perception that is a deception
Then you are under a misconception
If what you see has been distorted
Then you have been completely rorted

If you have a mistaken idea or a notion
Then you have just swallowed a poisonous potion
If what seems to be to you, is really not
Then what you believe is utter rot

Sometimes the wronger the stronger is the thought
The thought that really shouldn't be ought
Let this thought go, don't clasp it tight
And the thought that is wrong, will then become right

(Sydney, Australia - 2005)
