Loneliness is the coat you wear

There wasn't any Law


               But there wasn't any law, there was no rhyme or reason ; and with the sour-grapes attitude of ''why should there be ?'' - which is as near as you ever came to sophistication - you retired within yourself and compensated for the disappointment by drink ..............
