"To Pay the Rent" (version with one line revised)

So do I think that Sylvia was brave,

Selfish – or was she just out of her tree?

Don’t save me when there’s no-one left to save.

All is need is somebody to hear me.

So is it fair for people to blame Ted?

Why judge the lives of those we've never met?

What did Mind ever mean by "user-led"?

Why bother putting poems on the Net

Or writing them at all? I’m killing time,

But aren’t we all? It feels as though we are.

I’m always searching for another rhyme.

He drives me crazy with his damn guitar.

We’ve got a coalition government –

Still no income with which to pay the rent.
