benefit is never enough
 to feed and clothe

 of getting out
 from under
 of this house

 of laugh and joke
 and good singsong
 with me mates

 of me children
 growing warmer
 and beyond me

 of leaning on
 those living close
 and waiting

 of your kisses
 long as you don’t
 take me seriously

 of you staying away
 what he dunt know
 he can’t hurt

 of these weapons
 to keep me safe
 if he tries owt

 of not another serious
 not yet while there’s
 the full benefit of meself
