A poem for the Cramp, 9/24.
There goes another loser
Look at him, what a sight!
Disheveled, dirty and messy
He could be quite a fright

There goes another loser
Life has got him down
His hands are in his pockets
And on his face he wears a frown

There goes another loser
I can judge him yes I can!
I don’t know of his heartache
Or what his troubles span

There goes another loser
He looks so gruff to me!
Maybe times are rough for him
I'm sure to let him be

There goes another loser
He’s struggling to make his way
He’s looking for a dollar
Because there’s hell to pay

There goes another loser
What’s he want with me?
Oh no, man, I can’t help you
I’m a loser too you see.

There goes another loser
I can judge him, yes I can!
Because I know the pain he feels
To be less than a man.

There goes another loser
And a final word to you
Extend a hand in grace my friend
Lest that loser becomes you.
