'Where are you going?'
A family reunion then lay down the law
For deep rooted grudges and settling scores
And debts to pay when there's nothing to say
Where there's a will there's a way!
The cost of the taxi wasn't fare
A price to pay, an eternal stare
Below blue skies while the eyes
Pale in comparison, as life ebbed away
Caught by sea, see TV, immoral theft
Watched by millions, as panic left
From one place to the next
In a county shocked, bereft
Gunning for a runner in glorious summer
Killing time while the meters off
A taxing period for a man whose eyes
Were blind to human demise
This picturesque hell, for reasons to tell
A shocking conclusion after hours of confusion
12 unwilling disciples, a selfish last supper
Taken away, while the rest made to suffer.

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
