6000 MILES FROM HOME

Written by: Paul Beadnall

"Each experience is locked within my heart and only I hold the key..."

Stifling heat,hectic surroundings,locals their lifestyle
politeness,honesty stems from karma overwhelming profile
hardworking for a pitance,food to provide
sending money to the village,the family to divide.

Monies earned in cities,triple valued north
tourist prices enable the workers to go forth.
Youths sleeping beneath cardboard,such a crying shame
reds and blues collide,goverment all to blame.


On arriving home,no possibility to explain
the differance Thailand throws from luxury to the pain
however life goes on,in Pattaya o so what a thrill
to walk the golden dragon stairs, the giant Buddah on the hill.
