Sol Goes Shopping

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 It’s a tough life
sifting through the bargain bins
those out of date and dented tins
are metaphors, defeats and wins

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 my up and down world.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s physically hard
training
playing
falling down
to cat calls form the uncooth crowd
in winter when the rain is cold

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 my ears go numb.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 It’s so insecure
the contracts and careers are short
like fresh fish we are sold and bought
with sunken eyes devoid of thought

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 on sell by day.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Nobody understands
the pressures of the modern store
corned beef
chopped pork
or spam galore
the ckeckout bleeps
the fan’s dropped jaw

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 as souls are sold.
