‘It Wasn’t Me’
Politicians get on my nerves. Their promises rain down like confetti at a wedding but mostly never happen. Some are great liars, others just feed on the lies.
Harry lives in a cardboard box behind the Eiffel Tower
Alice sits in doorways hoping for hard currency in exchange for a wilting flower
Today she’ll sleep under the Bridge of Sighs in a gondola she nicked last night
While Jane tries to flog ‘The Big Issue’ mag in some dark place out of sight
All and any of the usual crowd were invited to the fat man’s ball
Except for Harry, Jane and Alice who never got the call
I guess we’re all just people
Some are rich and some are poor
It’s just that the rich buy all the miracles
And the poor have no saviour
Politicians smile and go shaking hands, their disciples at their side
They promise to make the poor less poor, they promised but they lied
They promise almost anything that helps them get ahead
Yet in reality don’t give a damn that Alice don’t have a bed
New topic. Putting my two backing track albums together there’s 40 pieces of music that run nearly 8 hours. Each track reveals a new mood from which you can lie back and think of creativity or build a song around them. Here’s an Emotional Grove as an example. I hope you enjoy;
As well as being out there on SPOTIFY for quality streaming, below is Bandcamp where these numbers can be downloaded;
Also, for any poets out there wanting to turn a poem into a top quality song for an affordable price – a low price (just £100 for an acoustic song) only available because I undertake the whole project from start to finish, hence no third party composers, musicians, recording engineers, studio fees etc., whose charges that can run into the thousands – I’m your man. There’s a link on the top bar of this blog reading ‘Your Poetry to Song’ if you should want to get in touch.
