I swear it wasn't me. No, I saw your brother
falling out your family tree - I broke his fall.
Even as a half-caste chimpanzee
I would like to climb your family tree.
Though I'm nearly half way up
there ain't a branch in sight.
Your mother had a wooden spoon.
We were crying, waiting in the TV room.
You said, “it don't hurt.”
Poisoned by embarrassment and pain,
I could never look at her the same.
Even through my impish eyes
I See

Spoken word:

bring your poisons
I’ll give you reasons
These are right seasons
I’m knocking on the door
I’m playing outside on the grass
I’m falling down stairs
I’ve got a plaster on my knees
I see you across the street
on your brand-new ride
I lift my arm and hand to wave
but then realise that you can see right through me
