And all I wanted was just to be alone
But now I found myself smiling with no reason
Funny that sometimes you're in my imagination

All she wants is to wear an expensive ring
My heart is pure yet she forgets that

Like our cups, these words pour.

I am everywhere, I am the darkness, the grief, the sadness.
Once I enter your head, it would be hard for you to get me off of your system.

A seven years' bargain for the Golden Fleece.

The Shadow Kitten

There's a funny little kitten that tries to look like me,

And when I try to mew to him he never makes a sound,
And when I jump into the air he never leaves the ground.

Afternoon Tea

As I was saying . . . (No, thank you; I never take cream with my tea;
Cows weren't allowed in the trenches-got out of the habit, y'see.)
As I was saying, our Colonel leaped up like a youngster of ten:
“Come on, lads!” he shouts, “and we'll show 'em,” and he sprang to the head of the men.

Drifting away under our feet, quite easy.

It was somewhere in September, and the sun was going down,
When I came, in search of `copy', to a Darling-River town;

And 'twas raining, for a wonder, up at Come-and-have-a-drink.

There's a very funny insect that you do not often spy,

But nothing like a wooly grub that climbs upon a tree.

I guess they're mostly decent, just the same as most of us.

W'en they need a shingle or the soft side of a plank;"
She says "we're a-itchin' for a right good spank."
