into a bubbling puddle of heroin
Creating the haze
That creeps across the park
Like a dense fog
- Like a pendulum on my grandfathers clock –
Swinging on monkey bars of dealers
With their MONKEY on my back
Spinning on the merry go round of liquor
Trying to walk life’s straight line
Teeter tottering in and out of reality
On the courts of life
Playing for the last shot 3…...2…….......1………......
