A dark and twisted tale of a man doing a bedside vigil at the side of his dying elderly estranged father. Mixed feelings of hatred, love and guilt for this horrible old man. The bitter nurse pumps him full of morphine. Euthanasia?


Time to spare and time to kill
Choking on that bitter pill
Wishing that you changed your will
Hate you, but I love you still

Sloppy food that makes you ill
Raven on your window sill
Bet you love the daffodil
Sun goes down don’t catch a chill

Make a mess then in the hoist
Cordial to keep you moist
Crocodile in floods of tears
Cough it up for all the years

Greedy man he went to jail
Freedom now but old and frail
Still alive but looking pale
Cross the street just like a snail

Silly fool now falls asleep
Prays to God his soul to keep
To the pyre just watch them weep

Nurse, nurse you hear him cry
Will that bastard never die
But she’s got something up her sleeve
And a tangled web to weave

Doctors orders and she’s keen
A stronger dose of sweet morphine
Enough to wilt the daffodil
Hate you, hate you, hate you, but I love you still
