One Shot At Redemption - Live

Updated: May 16


"One Shot" is a poem from my collection of poems awaiting publication entitled

"Relentless Realities"

It is recorded at Regent Cinema in Regents Street, London.

One Shot At Redemption

My Lady Went And Left Me

Left Me For Another Plan

What Was Hard For Me To Understand

She Didn’t Leave Me For Another Man

And When I Asked The Reason

The Tears Just Filled Her Eyes

She Said Although I Loved And Needed You

You Couldn’t Give Me Paradise

She Said…

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Can’t Afford To Lose

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Had To Choose

She Said…

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And For Us It Is Bad News

I Get One Shot At Redemption

No More Pain And Blues

After Three Years Of Courtship

Four Years Of Wedded Bliss

This Was Unexpected

Her Love I Was Going To Miss

I Said…

What About The Future

And All Those Long-Term Schemes

What About The Children

Who Filled Up All Our Dreams

She Said…

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Can’t Afford To Lose

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Had To Choose

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And For Us It Is Bad News

I Get One Shot At Redemption

No More Pain And Blues

She Went Off To Start Her New Life

And I Stayed Home To Think

When It Got Near To Breaking Point

I Had One Or Two To Drink

After The Divorce I Got Smart

And Started To Take Stock

Just When I Started To Enjoy Myself

She Wanted To Come Back

I Said…

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Can’t Afford To Lose

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And I Had To Choose

I Get One Shot At Redemption

And For Us It Is Bad News

I Get One Shot At Redemption

No More Pain And Blues.
