Not having achieved celebrity status I know you won’t be interested in this, my first kiss.
It was hit or miss.
Not exactly instant bliss.
A scientific experiment that failed, I had yet to reach the stars.
I gave up candy bars.

Now at last I do or die.
Or at least try.
I cannot pay one who knows, I can’t afford new clothes.
No money, don’t you understand?
I don’t, things are not grand.
I myself must find out how, that’s the best way.
I may ring one last friend, today.
Writing this is postponement, I must make atonement.
For what I am not sure, maybe a lazy mind.
I am not the thinking kind.
Some things come easily to me.
Not everything, you see.
My best friend believed in me.
So I will try, and hopefully achieve.
I must myself believe.
Others have done it, so can I.
I tell myself that is no lie.
It will happen if I try.
I have no other choice, its up to me.
I will do it, wait and see.

I am a creature of my time and place, I have a handsome face.
So a woman said to me as I passed by, who am I to disagree, who am I?
My time is all time that went before and youth and age, do I bore?
My place is here, stick in the mud, I travelled, I have Irish blood.
So there you have it, God’s child speaks, holidays in how many weeks?
So I may have asked at school in endless time, was I a fool?
Time goes faster when you’re old, but I don’t care, my story told.
I am not sure quite what I am.
Frankly, I don’t give a damn.
Clark Gable said that before me in the most popular film in history.
Until Star Wars came along, I saw that too, another song.
I like art of almost every kind.
Simple things are best, I find.

Don’t wonder about things, find out.
All you have to do is ask, that’s what its all about.
Its either yes or no or quick or slow.
If it doesn’t work try another way.
So I heard my mother say.
The world is full of wonder, magic, spells.
Pleasant and unpleasant smells.
I could say scent, you know what I meant.
Avoid the void of ignorance, look and find.
That way lies peace of mind.

Messiah seeks disciples, without experience will do.
Is this you?
No need to wear a beard but you can if you like.
No need to have put your finger in a dyke.
I could say dam, but that’s not the sort of man I am.
Whether my mission makes any difference remains to be seen.
I am more or less a human being.
I know that doesn’t rhyme, but so what?
For the moment that’s your lot.

A foray into the outside world putting off what I should do.
Am I like you?
The task I face appears immense, have I any sense?
The Devil is in the detail, my head begins to spin.
When will I begin?
The more you know the more you know you don’t know.
I thought I’d say that before I go.
The people I work with appear good, am I?
If not, why?
So many questions to ask before I get down to my task.
Take them one by one.
Ask the right question.
That’s my suggestion.
Of the right person too.
It could be you.
Get up and do.
Nothing ventured nothing gained.
An old saying, the truth remained.
Doing nothing is a crime.
End of rhyme.
