    Scarecrow Addict

    Gritted and dusty
    Powered by flack jacket eyes
    Bootsteps through grey puddles
    Flotilla of cigarette butts
    Trash kicked aside
    In a desert of litter
    Seeking the soulless of death
    Chattering on split lips
    The grimy irk of air
    Festoons the rink and rack
    The floating black
    Sucks unbidden

    Horses into battle ridden
    Scream through his lungs
    Broken weapons
    Filled with empty bullets
    Enemies in their colours run

    Demon angel
    Of the iridescent metal
    In the bars of sculptured hell
    For the hot choke of alcohol
    Has squandered his nights
    And burnt his will
    The vengeance of mirrors
    He cannot defy
    He has become
    The man with the gun

    And rabid dog bark
    Is the music
    The fang gangster rap
    Chews on his pride
    Coughs back and spits
    Too many drugs
    To fill his hate
    As he seethes through the alleys
    The ricochet sound of poverty
    Slaps hard at the cold

    Whistle through the doorstep
    The vicious snide crack
    Scavenges his chest
    Scarecrow buckshot
    Trammels his lungs
    And coughs up plastic
    Iron girders against shattered walls
    Where the whole world threw up
    His sick

    Chokes on the disgusting chuck up
    Of need
    So full of promises
    But still lets in the freezing winds
    To whined up urine stained
    In the pallor
    The colour
    Of his sky

    Bandit warrior and loser
    This brave young man
    Watched this driven and ploughed memory
    Eat away
    By iron vice drag
    Devastate his pale haired wench
    Leaving blood trailing on her breast
    She was

    And hate in grey battered uniforms
    Drove the callous on
    And lifted him from the reeking cans
    Of his desolation
    Bled him through nights of sweat
    And cold turkey chewed regret
    The plaster wet billboard and pealing advert
    Have no idea
    What they have unleashed

    Brittle as long dead bones
    And screaming head
    No longer hates
    But still sneers revenge
    In tattered loose rags
    He staggers from the vomiting pit
    Emaciated wolf

    The grinning scarecrow eyes of merciless
    And the jagged teeth of candle lit
    The reek of vendetta
    Hangs ever about his lips
    And woe betide the gun smith
    Woe betide indeed the needles
    Wet prick
    Nothing left to fight for
    Other than
    A long dead
