There is loads of songs directly about heroin but one verse sticks out in my mind, it to me covers more than heroin. It's power is in it's simplicity of life in general or how it can get.
The song is an old Billy Joel song called Piano Man about his early days of playing in cheap joints
"Theres an old man sitting next to me making love to his tonic and Gin," just one line I love
"It's a pretty good night for a Saturday and the manager gives me a smile,
Cause he knows that its me they been coming to see to forget about life for a while"
"Sing us song your the piano man sing us a song tonight,
Cause where all in the mood for a melody and you got us feeling alright"

If i told you that sniffing butane gas can stop the crave for opiates you would think I was wrong. but i have done all drugs and experimented on myself. Booze creates an connection with nicotine. We are only startching the surface and answer me this how can a group of people using solvents see the same 'halluncintion'. how can an opiate dependant person go days without opiates if he sniffs butane gas. why can a person take 200ml of valium drink a bottle of vodka, plus 250ml of methadone and write a masterpiece. So how can this person be treated with sufficent pain relief from a junior doctor at A.E. you tell me. Doctors need to learn from us..... or do we matter. COMPASSION & UNDERSTANDING is in my world, is it in the medical world?

This is when I was at the end of my rope. Strung out on heroin I rang the then Methadone Alliance and who happened to be walking past the phone but a certain Bill Nelles.

Some light reading for the Mr and Mrs I watch Eastenders , Big Brother and use our phone to destroy peoples lives on 'Reality' shows. I don't write many poems especially when your mood makes your head feel like it is full of black tar.
