Barbara

I hear Barbara laughing
Behind barbed wire
I hear crying
Far away

I see across the road
Barbara
Behind barbed wire

She called me
Her Knight in tarnished armour
“Thanks a bunch…Barby Doll!”

She said I was like a dog
Chasing cars
I guess she was right

Isn’t it sad
That the only reality
In a cruel world
Is chance?

The Knight is darkest
Just before the dawn
But I promise you
The dawn will come
Barbara

Artist's Description

Life is one hell of a thing for a person to live with.
I met Barbara again by chance today, we were very close about 30 years ago.
