SWITCHING OFF MY MIND AS I SWITCH ON MY TV.

by on July 12, 2023 :: 0 comments

I sling down a large double
And spark my goodness to life
And the tingle is sublime
The tingle tangle
Spingle spangle of my mind
Under the influence of
This powerful medication
As it intoxicates me to the point
Of distraction.

My eyes drift to my window
Peering out into the incoming
Darkness of night as my radio
Whines on with football talk
As my mind switches off
Maybe ready for some 50
Year old police drama TV greats
Which I’ve watched these last
Couple of nights.

I sit and swoon over the LA
Women of ’67 as Friday works
His way through the hippies
And the drunks and the mobsters
As I wonder how quick he would
Have got me. I’m glad I never
Lived in his drama TV time as
The sentences handed down
Always leave me appalled as
Some poor sucker gets ten years
For holding a quite tame night.
