Big panic

Big panic

It’s just one of those days today
All the power here is gone
Oh what a catastrophy
The list goes on and on
Of all the things that we can’t do
There’s no more drinking tea
And sitting down to my computer
What a ruddy curse this be.

We never seem to realize
How lost we seem to be
Without that electricity
Can’t even watch TV
No radios or computer games
No vacuuming the floors 
Can’t even use the ruddy treadmill
And still there’s so much more.

What spoilt creatures then, are we
Until it lets us down
Then we walk around the house
Wearing a great big frown
But me I’m thinking ‘can’t be helped
That’s just the way things are
Nd so I light me up a smoke
And play my old guitar.
