Poetry – Roy

Poetry – Roy

I’ll let you guess who this is about.

Roy

Household dissenter,

Absconder and antagonist;

Army runaway

And asylum breakouter;

Prison inmate,

Jazz marathon poet

And convention flouter.

 

Travelling busker,

Songwriter;

Dauber on the city walls.

Gig talker,

Hitch-hiker,

Singer with the biggest balls.

 

Awkward and acerbic,

Sweet and melodic,

Laughing madly in the gale.

A stormcock,

A harper,

Creator of the epic rail.

I'd like to hear from you...
