The Town of Bath

The town of Bath is Ravenstruck by the sign of the Times

That there is to be a new play for the sin of the fatherland

Which opens its gaols to the men and women of the peace-

Keeping mission called drug addiction

But which goes by the shmo called the real one then

It opens the doors to the rest too.

This whole island in a slave camp made for the rich and wealthy

But not for the poor who slave for them.

It is without the best intention that it is so – it is so because

It is not without the way forward it is without the way through

To the next millennium and it shows to the rest of the place

That it is a matter of time before there is no way

To go to the toilet without sharing with the rapscallion who did it.
