Lemn Sissay

He endured the care system so called.

His foster parents stonewalled.

He exorcises the ghost of who he was.

He speaks on their behalf because.

Name Of God

In the name of God where is God if not everywhere?

The very air, here and there.

God is truth, that is not all.

We live on a round ball.

He is love, what we all need.

Rare indeed.

Love is giving, is this living?

God and truth are absolutely ignored.

If you speak of God people are bored.

Truth is hated.

People waited.

God is everyday.

He has not gone away.

When all else fails he will return.

In Hell we burn.

God is what you put first.

We have not seen the worst.

The Devil cursed.

The result you see.

Where does that leave me?

Hoping truth will be.

From ourselves set us free.

Including me.

Don’t forget me.

Is it good enough to wait and see?


If you want to know you know.

I told you so.

So now you know.

This snail is slow.

Heart And Reason

Rationality is not all its cracked up to be but it means a lot to me.

There is reason in my rhyme all the time.

Art comes from feeling in a room beneath the ceiling.

At other times below the sky.

It pays to wonder why.

The more you depend on yourself the less you depend on anyone else.

Einstein looked into his heart, he said where do I start?

I love heart and brain as one beneath the Sun.

At 78 have I begun?

I am my mother’s oldest son.

There was one before, he is no more.

I have seen the sea and shore.

I sailed, I flew.

Did you?

Walked and talked too.

Enjoyed the view.

I live in Ireland below the 55th parallel.

My choice of Hell.

Where I was born, I believe in the world although I have not seen it.

You name it, I have been it.

The Earth and the world are not the same thing, it pays to use distinction.

People make the world and may lead us to extinction.

The world has borders, Earth has none.

Madness and love exist beneath the Sun.

What is the square root of one?

Its one you fool, did you not hear that at school?

Perhaps you did not listen many don’t I do.

Here’s looking at you.

Welcome to the Milky Way.

I’ve had my say.

For today.

What is the reason for this rhyme?

I wrote it because I had the time.

If you wish, analyse.

I don’t tell lies.

What’s good about goodbyes?

We coexist in time.

End of rhyme.

This is rather long and people don’t like that.

I had a dog and cat.

That’s that.

I just read this to my brother, he called it the meanderings of a madman, a happy madman.

I do what I can.

To make it clear, reason is not everything.

Heart is king.

More people know me than I know.

They wave and say hello.

Some know me by name.

And from where I came.

Is this fame?

No, its friendliness.

I like more of it, not less.

I have quite a lot to say, before I go away.

I sing a song of music, love and hope.

I am the Dalai Lama and the Pope.

Not quite, they are better known than me.

I’m not everybody’s cup of tea.

Why can’t we live in harmony?

I know many think like me.

For the future, wait and see.

Vale Of Tears

Can words make any difference in this vale of tears?

I am a man of 78 years.

I have my fears.

A world of tears.

We need a cure.

Of that I’m sure.

I’ve never been so certain.

Before the final curtain.

We need truth and peace and love, we need them now.

It’s a sad world without them anyhow.

So start, start now.

In life, where else, its all we’ve got.

You make a difference, who says not?

There is a flower called forget me not.
