Treasure Island

Chris Leermakers

(13/10/1974 / Melbourne, Australia)

Just One Beer:


I’ve Had It Up To Here
It’s Amounted To So Much
Strange Noises In The Distance
I’m Starting To Get Fed Up
Hey Tell Me What’s The Answer
What’s It All About
Frustration Building In The Air
In This Dead End Shout

Looks Like It’s That Time Again
Can’t Even Have A Beer
Can’t Stand It Any Longer
I’ve Gotta Get Out Of Here

Looking For Some Action
What Do I Want Tonight
I Roll Up In A Dusty Bar
And Drink ‘Til I’m Alright
Then Some Dude Comes On Over
He’s Looking For Some Action
Yeah Looking For A Fight
I Can’t Even Get Happy
So I’ll Just Put Him Asleep
Yeah Right Asleep
Yeah Nap Time Is Just Early
For Him Tonight

Looks Like It’s That Time Again
Can’t Even Have A Beer
Can’t Stand It Any Longer
I’ve Got To Get Out Of Here

So I Get My Head Together
It’s Time To Have Some Fun
I See Some Dude Selling Trips
I Promise Ya, Just One
Soon Enough I’m Spinning Out
What Brought Me To This Place
See Strangers All Around Me
And Such An Evil Face

Looks Like It’s That Time Again
Can’t Even Have Just One Beer
Can’t Stand It Any Longer
Just Saw The Police Outside
Yep, Looking Stronger
Yeah How Am I Gunna Get Out’a Here....

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
