I have two friends called Michael, here and there,
breathing the same air.
Once upon a time in a time long gone,
I sat at a table with five people called John.
They did not like that brought to their attention,
they’d prefer it didn’t get a mention.
I have not met so many with my given name,
but some, none of them the same.
At junior school they called me Tich,
I did not grow up rich.
There is one Tich Ennis only,
does that mean I’m lonely?
