Poem: Don’t overstay your welcome 

Don’t overstay your welcome 

The hounds are nipping at your heels 

Nothing ever lasts forever 

There’s always a final reel 


They build you up to bring you down 

It’s how it’s always been 

Superstars burn out real fast 

Nothing lasts forever as it might seem


Two and two might add up to five

But it can quickly become three

Falls from grace are a daily occurrence 

Look at what happened to me 


Thought I had it all and more

Until it became a sunset industry 

I was thrown off the golden horse 

And suddenly I was part of history 


Desperation is creeping in fast 

There’s sudden panic in the air 

Disappearing tricks are making the rounds 

Cons are being discovered everywhere

Poem: You can float your boat

You can float your boat You can talk grand plans You can drop names like atom bombs But who are you kidding? And where’s the joke? It’s in every single lie you’ve spoke The joker wears a thorny crown

Poem: We get lost when we’re a child 

We get lost when we’re a child We then get dropped when we’re old In the middle there’s all kinds of stuff Sometimes there’s silver and often one’s left out in the cold
