Macho Man


Head off home
Pub now closed
Macho man

Fags and lighter
In shirt pocket
Macho man

Back at home
Flick on TV
Macho man

Boots on table
Mud on boots
Macho man

Grip bottle by neck
Spin lid with thumb
Macho man

Swig it down
Grit your teeth
Macho man

Can’t face food
Light up instead
Macho man

Watch stand-up show
But see no joke
Macho man

Drink some more
Until you choke
Macho man

TV now off
Screen of black
Macho man

Like the demon
On your back
Macho man

Thoughts so mad
Clamour and crowd
Macho man

Not too sane
But plenty loud
Macho man

Drink some more
Heave a sigh
Macho man

Fall to knees
Begin to cry
Lonely man


…And if that was too maudlin for your taste, take a look around my site. I’m sure you’ll find something more appealing!

If you’re sense of humour borders on insanity like mine…
