NaPoWriMo 2013 #10 – Baby It’s Cold Inside

NaPoWriMo 2013 poem number 10 written for the daughter of a dear friend.

BABY IT’S COLD INSIDE


SHE USED TO BE ABLE

TO SPEND HALF HER DAY

SAT AT HER TABLE

OUTSIDE THE TIME CAFE

WITH A CAPPUCINO

AND A ROLL UP CIGARETTE

WATCHING THE WORLD GO

HOW MUCH BETTER CAN IT GET?

 

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

 

SHE WANTS TO GO OUT

LIKE SHE ALWAYS HAD

SHE WANTS TO GO OUT

THEY SAY SHE IS MAD

KEEP HER LOCKED AWAY

IN THAT WAY THEY CAN

LOCK HER WELL AWAY

IN COLD COMFORT LAND

 

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

 

THEY TOOK HER FREEDOM

WRAPPED IT UP IN RULES

RULES OVER FREEDOM

FROM A BUNCH OF FOOLS

SAY IT’S FOR THE BEST

FOR HER PROTECTION

IT’S THE VERY BEST

FORWARD PROJECTION

 

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

SHE’S TRAPPED NOW

BY THE WHITE COATS

 

BABY IT’S COLD INSIDE

BABY IT’S COLD INSIDE
