I saw Co-cheòl performing ’Torn Screen Door’ with David Francey at this years National and fell in love with their exuberant blend. This song (written for this year’s FAWM) was an all too rare opportunity to put down the bass and just revel in acapella heaven. This is a simple ode to procrastination and a disorganised life. Funny how I write lots of those. There is one term however that might bear a definition “Yak shaving is what you are doing when you're doing some stupid, fiddly little task that bears no obvious relationship to what you're supposed to be working on, but yet a chain of twelve causal relations links what you're doing to the original meta-task.” -Scott Hanselman


Monday Comes Down

Monday rolls around again
It's gathering speed
Picking up passengers
I'm tightly wound, so far
behind myself that if I squint real hard

I'll see my own silhouette
Looming on the horizon, yet
both clueless
when the hammer of Monday comes down

Wednesday lost and found again
Distracted detail wrangling and shaving of yaks
and getting off tracks and generally
dancing to the nearest tune I hear

What was I supposed to doing?
And what was I meant to achieve?
It all seemed clear when the hammer of Monday came down.

But Friday, floats in and saves the day
With some silly pink drink with umbrellas, lycra and a cape.

Saturday's lost its crown again
And I'm gathering clothes, bottles, dishes and sanity....
Oh how I need a panadeine
A week in my king size bed, instead I've got

Sunday's scornful frown again
I set the bedside alarm
I rest in Sunday's arms
A small oasis of calm...
Before the hammer of
Monday comes down
