I Am Not David – Written July 2006 (Aged 31)

I Am Not David

i am not david
i have his genes
but i have never –
come apart at the seams

i am not david
how could i be?
do you think so little of me?
i have made –
so many mistakes
faltered and not altered
but the celebration –
of friends and family means –
that i am no david

you want us and think us –
to be one and the same
the crazy paving of your brain
the echo of your lonely games

i am not david
i am not david
i am not david
does this have any resonance?
does it break through the nonsense?
i am not david
