When a Hug is a Wordless Drug

when words don’t work ,and your feeling the hurt 

and all you can do is give a shrug 

and the red mist has steam coming out 

of your raging eyeballs and throbbing ear lugs 

always remember, when your carpet becomes a rug 

that a hug is a Wordless Drug 


when your feelings are burnt , and tears hit the dirt 

and your  feelings are about to erupt 

and you’ve smashed every plate ,saucer and cup 

and the police have arrived and locked you up in handcuffs 

Always remember , when your house becomes a hut 

that a hug is a Wordless Drug 


you can wear yourself out ,with worn out talk 

when forgiveness can’t be bought 

when your feeling less proud ,after the shouts 

arguing round , roundabouts , 

and you can get rid of the insects , but you’ve still got the bugs 

then you’ll , a Hug is a Wordless Drug 


when pain can’t disperse , and your lost for a tender verse 

and your tongue is glued , to some hurtful words 

and it feels like a coffin won’t fit the hearse 

and your tarmac road , becomes some boggy mud 

always remember , as you slam the door with a big thud 

that a hug is a Wordless Drug
