Ant Smith

Identity

It's not you, it's me

You have a right to act this way

To say those things you like to say

To watch TV to hate the freaks

To hold unqualified beliefs

To just keep calm and carry on

To seek no strings attached sex fun

To close your eyes when things are dark

To suppress tears with hollow laugh

You have a right to be who you are

To compensate with booze and cars

To take an alley drunken piss

To buy the next big gadget hit

To holiday in summer sun

To be back home where you belong

To join the ranks of the lost not found

To live your live in a compound

You have a right to live your life

But then again, so do I

Have my right to cause surprise

So let us both sleep well tonight
