People Shake

People are complicated things.

They break easily and

When they do

They’re difficult to put back together.

.

I once had a friend called Matt.

He broke down one day.

His light went out

And he went out with it, hand in hand.

.

Another friend was called Julie.

She was attacked by a dog.

A black dog.

You can’t see her scars but they’re there.

.

We all think we’re alright really.

That’s the funny thing.

I’m also lost.

But I’ll insist all day long that I’m okay.

.

It’s difficult to know how to help

My mum used to say:

“Put ’em in a bag,

And shake ’em up.”

.

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

Shake shake, shake, shake,

Shake, shake,

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
