‘Let Us Smile Each Chance We Get’

I lost that badge

Later that night

In a drunken haze

On Fleet Street

My arm was twisted

So the fun embargo lifted

And my fears, for once,

I managed to beat

Temple Bar

The hordes gather outside your hotel window.



Having fun.

You wish you could be more like them.



More confident.

Instead you’re sitting in your room alone with the curtains drawn.

With nothing but your ‘I Hate People’ badge for company.
