When I Was A Boy


When I was a boy
Solace was
Where the music played
Secure in my small room
The music hid me
From the rod-in-the-hand
From the reeling of the mouth
The music transported me
To a place no abuse was allowed
Where maternal hypocrisy
Was replaced by romantic love

It was a place where
People needed one another
People which made them
The luckiest
Unlike me
When I was a boy
