"Switches"



Something isnít working,
Something isnít on,
Something didnít happen
And I canít find whatís gone wrong.
Checked all the fuses,
Every one was fine,
Not a single reason
For this failure in the line.
I thought I checked this yesterday,
It was working then.
I switched off for a moment
And it wonít switch on again.

Switches on,
Switches off,
Switches in,
Switches out,
Switches up,
Switches down.
Switches left,
Or right,
Or round.
Nothings happening again.
Which switch to switch
With what to gain?
A moment to light up a spark,
A glimmer of the faintest life
But nothiní,
Zip,

Zilch,

Zero,

Dud.

This temperamental
Loviní game!
