How To Squash High Hopes

HOW TO SQUASH HIGH HOPES

Comparatively
speaking, I’ve felt worse,
like when I had pneumonia,
or that sinus infection
when you and I were
on holiday, or when I
had that toothache that
burnt a hole straight to middle earth.
Comparatively
speaking, I felt worse
then, but when your head is full
of cold and your nose
bubbles like an air pump
in a fish tank, and
your head bangs a rhythm
to In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,
well that’s the time,
comparatively speaking,
when you probably
shouldn’t think you’re a randy rabbit.
