Stands the clock at half past three and is there coffee still for tea?
Who wrote that, me.
Strongly influenced by Rupert Brooke who’s poem is worth a second look.
He died in the first world war possibly in the trenches.
When alive he may have sat on village benches.
Everyone loved his poem he said he wrote it in five minutes flat.
I suppose I’m less serious than him.
The boy in Treasure Island is called Jim.
Robert Louis Stevenson wrote that and many others you have heard of but may not know he wrote.
Frank Sinatra was called old golden throat.
I sailed on the mailboat.
I name some famous names here.
They come and go and disappear.
Life is not homosexual but queer.
I’m still here.
