Douglas Blair

Douglas Blair 1951 (London)



Write about me?
How vain, how pointless.
Who really cares.
Just footprint in the tide.
Swept by those waters.
Pulse of life
Overbearing.
BUT there are verses
Sparking Life inside.
How did I get them?
Cannot claim the genius
Inspiration came.
First there was fretting
Bout some weighty topic.
Then heard a Voice:
Son let Us pen the same.
I have the right words.
You just clip
The keyboard.
First draft will catch it
Seems almost insane.
