Showering Praise (Originally Untitled and Unfinished) – Written October 2010 (Aged 35)

Showering Praise

you went
from showering praise
to digging the earth
for my grave
well i have breath
i need to save

for all those, ‘admirers’
i suggest avoid that course
is too easily bought
far too easily sought

James Garratt – October 2010
