A Headlong Stretch: vi. As You Were

Peter Hammill


It's some relief
to find the possible in store
beyond belief
in overtime, I'm overboard
uncharted waters, full fathom five,
the future's rising, it's just arrived.

It's not the same
as I imagined it would be
but there's no blame
if every life's imaginary.

And if I get quite what I deserve
that'll end the sentence, the time I've served
a full stop to the sentence.....

When it's all done you willed the person you've become
in serious fun it's as you were that you become
and so it's done.
