A poem by my dad…

My Dad astounds me. He just comes out with poems, they roll off his tongue like water. He says he can’t be bothered to write them down, so I do for him. Sometimes they just pop into his head. Here’s a good old death shanty…


I want to be a buried

In the deep blue sea

Where all the crabs and  prawns and things

Can make a feast on me

I probably won’t taste as good

As they did to me

But that’s the way the factory works

When you enter Eternity.
