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?

Absolutely not!

What rot.
