Bright bright shield your eyes
Sight Sight, lose it, as it fades, not yours, just mine
Imprinted, implanted, let your vision stay
We can see from our memory, but only this way
White stick tap tap. Smell the street air
Hands up clap clap, I imagine the stares
I Should poke my tongue out, and give them a show
Now I’m being naughty. Not their fault I 'm slow
Can you see me? Are you left or right?
I can hear your breathing, just a bit, if I hold my breath tight
Sniff sniff, like a mouse, nose up in the air
Beep beep, splash splash its raining, who cares?
Drops tap like pin pricks and slide down my skin
Over my cheeks and off of my chin
I want to dance, right now in the rain
No I can't. They'll think I’m Insane
Squelch squelch, see it, that puddle? I bloody didn't!
Pull pull, rosy, a dog of such care
She takes me to here and she leads me to there
She farts sometimes and they all think its me
I smile at her, I don’t care, let it be
My feet are all squishy my socks soaked right through
Oh no, not now, I need the damned loo!
Can't run, cant rush, Its painful you know?
Thank god for my special pants , I’ll just have to go!
Wet road and tyres come to a stop
shush shush, the door opens and on I must hop
I imagine their faces, some turning away, I get the urge to wave
Don’t do it, silly, just sit and be brave
flash my card, tap tap,take my seat
Rosie sitting all quiet at my feet
Are they looking at me? I don’t really care
No matter what I don't see, I am still so aware
Stop three, I'm counting right up to five , one more to go
Rosie will tell me, she'll make me move slow
She always does, steels the show.
Twenty steps later, now all warm and dry, I sit with my friends and we all cry, (with laughter that is.)
Bus journey is over, the driver was kind
That was eight minutes to feel what is blind.
