This Life

As good as it gets

(A poem for two voices by The GameCat and Calm Carl)

Let the wanker

See the dick splash

Let the madam

See the whiplash

Let the Junky

See the green grass

Let the addict

See the morass

Let the children

See the knife flash

Let the mothers

See the bomb blast

Let the drunkard

See the half glass

Let the old man

See the oak casque

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet

Let the duckling

See the foie gras

Let the princes

See the hoo-ha

Let the headlines

See the sidetrack

Let the banker

See the kick back

Let the gunner

See the aircraft

Let the soldier

See the top brass

Let the victim

See the nerve gas

Let the people

See the impasse

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet

Let the fledgling

Fear the hard ground

Let the black box

Fear the splash down

Let the puppy

Fear the impound

Let the kiddies

Fear the playground

Let the miser

Fear the next round

Let the manic

Fear the low down

Let the silence

Fear the whole sound

Let the old lost

Fear the new found

Let the poet

Be the word

Let the blind

Be the heard

Let the enemy

Be your friend

Let the beginning

Be the end

Let the love

Be the light

Let the coward

Feel the fight

Let the me

Be the reason

For the ever changing season

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet

It's as

Good as it gets, as good as it gets

We're not there but we'll get there yet
