Date of

Date of

Tattered and torn,

Smidged and smeared like a bruise.

Unwanted, unheeded, unvalued, unneeded.

Yesterday's news.

Today is a write-off.

Tomorrow who knows?

- wrapping chips if you're lucky.

See where the wind blows.

A heightened awareness

that the waste bins await.

Please not yet!

Surely there's more than yesterday's date?

Yesterday’s News

“Bye bye love.
 Goodbye happiness.
  Hello loneliness.......”

This song is about feeling devalued and even worthless after the breakdown of a  relationship.

So come gales and take me

up high and away.

Release the faint hope

of a new yesterday.

Try hard to remember

it's better to have been

yesterday's news

than unheard and unseen.

Do you believe in the phoenix?

It seems so far away.

The wind blows.  The press rolls.

Fare thee well, yesterday.

Fare thee well, yesterday.
