I don't know what I'm going to do
It's a good job that I haven't got a bad habit
Or I'd be in bed with "the flu "
I don't know how I'm going to cope
I don't know where I'm going to go
After 25 years somebody has
Finally stopped the flow
I guess that I will have to become straight
Although it will be hard
After 25 years of heroin
I guess you could say that I am scarred
About Ian Copestick:
I am 45 years old and live in Stoke On Trent, England.
I'm currently unemployed and surviving on £70 per week. This means that my lifestyle isn't particularly healthy, but it gives me plenty of time to think, read and write.
I started writing poetry 15 years ago after discovering Bukowski and being hit by the revelation that working class people CAN be poets.
This had literally never occurred to me before.
I also write prose and maybe some of it will appear in Dope ...
