The Most Profound Abortion


I've tasted this life in generous portions
I've suffered greatly, but, in the Rain,
through all my pain,
I've smiled and played
I've seen men who trade
their hearts, and what it typically involves
Their courage and virtue
slowly dissolve
no room to evolve
and this can mortally hurt you
it seems
once you've had the most profound Abortion;
The murder of ones's Hopes and Dreams.
Thank God I've been given
The faith to go on livin',
and to always ask
for a beer or a flask
to wash down another one of Life's bittersweet portions.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
