8 or so bees in my bonnet
[Tags|, , ]
[music |elbow - leaders of the free world]

the doctor that signed me in
was an indian girl not much older than me
she had beautiful henna designs on her hands which i was fascinated by
'i just got married' she smiled
'is he a good man?' i asked
'yes, i think so' she replied

i found a walkman in the waste paper basket
it seemed logical to me
that the first thing i played was
global communication.

when i arrived i was bitter and twisted
chain smoking like a bastard
and mad as the proverbial bag of frogs
but the atmosphere at the madhouse was calm
lovely calm like lilacs
and rock hard clear like quartz.
i just had to sit and appreciate.
and recuperate.

oh the bizarre games of monopoly
with sue , who was want to break out screaming,
eric, who seemed to have his own rule system,
and you.

i forget your name now
it's so long ago.
but we were brothers,
i think they'd pulled you in for being off your tits on mushrooms
and you'd quite liked the insane relaxed atmosphere.
we swapped tapes

and pitied the guy that liked to stand
and sing christmas carols
to the window.
you could wave a hand in front of his face,
'hey richard! wanna play monopoly?'
but he was too far gone.

i wouldn't mind except they taught me if that happened in my day you wouldn't be able to get a decent job and hence would not ever be able to be independent
i know things have changed a lot since then, still, middle aged crazy wimmenz are such a cliche i hate to be that
i just go to good hotels instead
different kind of crazy

yes you're right.
i guess i will never be truely independent
i will probably never start a cooperative in scotland
that grows organic vegetables
and makes its own electricity from gravity

So, you're on my friends list... and I vaguely remember you, but I can't say I can place why or when you added me. I'm bad at remembering such things.

Anyway, just doing a wee inventory on my own personal LJ land and... well, that's it. :)
