Men erecting scaffolding
It’s man’s work
I wonder what it’s like to be a man

It wasn’t poetry (if I had any sense)
It was spoken word (I would be elsewhere)
There’s a difference (with my brumal thoughts)

So much has been predicted
I doubt it will all come to pass

I can see no reason
he’s got that feeling

not surprisingly

A mood (passing
like a blackbird in the night?)

That, and the fact I don’t much care about other people’s problems

As an acquaintance of mine said to me only the other day when describing a mutual person who is sometimes described as a poet, he/she may be 29 years old or thereabouts but he/she has the sensibility of a 16 year old, and thus is her success and popularity with the youth explained.

A message came from The Tower
Outside the town
It was a song from the bottom of their hearts
