Needs Fixing

by: Rebecca Taylor

**Previously published by The Toronto Small Press Group in 2008**

 

Help the world needs fixing.

People are at war.

People are hungry.

People are homeless.

People need love.

 

Help the world needs fixing.

People seem unable to communicate.

The world lacks respect.

People won’t listen to each other.

Neighbours won’t shake hands.

 

Help the world needs fixing.

The environment is failing.

The world is fighting.

The economy is on a roller coaster ride.

Things just aren’t right.

 

Help the world needs fixing

Everyone learn to get along

Take the time to try to understand

Look for solutions

Get rid of blame.

 

Help the world needs fixing.

Everyone get together

Make changes

Bring about improvements

Do what needs doing.

 

Help the world needs fixing

Together it can be done

Take the time

Make the effort

One day the breaks can be fixed.

Trying to Dry Up

by: Rebecca Taylor

In the corner of a bar

Was a man unfit to drive his car

In the morning, his memory would be unable to tell his story.

He was trying to dry up

But his mind was very mixed up

He hurt everyone he clutched

He was just using the bottle as a crutch

And he just ended up trying not to reunite

With his very painful pint.

He and his wife

Caused each other lots of strife

Until one day

It came time to say good-bye

He did not cry

He just went on trying

He worked at a job as long as he could

But he was so often misunderstood

He went on trying to hide

All the bad feelings he had

Deep down he knew

That it was him who should keep trying

Eventually he threw the bottle

Against the wall

Said no to last call

He said he was sorry

To his love Rory

Picked up his life

And put an end to his strife

And he ended up trying not to reunite

With his very painful pint.
