Today I laughed at a juvenile context of a Pride lyric

“One man come on a barb wired fence”

Odd place to get personal release

great thread idea Zero

I'm caught in late night play

A boy tries hard to be a man, his mother takes him by his hand

Too tall to be a despot

And hardness it sets in
You some protection
The thinner the skin

Have to agree, brilliant thread idea Zeropartii.

There's a really obvious example in Red Flag Day for anyone who's interested..

Today I laughed at a juvenile context of a Pride lyric

“One man come on a barb wired fence”

Odd place to get personal release

I always thought it was caught....

Or have i just won the whoosh of the year award

It is "caught", I believe.
When all you’ve left is leaving, and all you got is grieving, and all you know is needing

My mind was dirty.  Haha. 

One man “come” in the name of love.

You've got stuck in a man
And now you can't get out of him
What gives human life it's worth anyway? Because someone loves it? Or hates it? The flesh is weak, only the soul is immortal.
