The Great Escapist

17 Dec

Double knots and steel locks
Strait jackets and a sealed box
A barrel heading for a waterfall
The great escapist escaped them all

And many things less perilous
Like in-law visits at Christmas
Works parties, the annual ball
The great escapist escaped them all

He even escaped the good in life
He escaped his kids, escaped his wife
He hid from them behind a wall
The great escapist escaped them all

In the end he couldn’t flee
The growing sense of misery
‘Til with a rope, a chair, a fall
The great escapist escaped it all.
