The give… [POEM]

I wrote poems for prisoners
that were much freer than I
considered it my business
to question freedoms ire
left open interpretation
sought a song to bye and bye
gave an old bum knowledge
he’d much rather have my time

and I’ve thrown away poems
that should have met your ear
instead I hid them safely
beneath a whispers drear
should have spoke in turn
gave aloud the thoughts I had
but an old bums’ wisdom
turned my happy sad

    This is really good! I am going to follow you and have a look later at some more of your work. Would love to hear you speaking this aloud, do you have a video or soundcloud?
