Have You Heard? – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Have You Heard?

have you heard
they are leaving today
and by tomorrow,
they will be faraway
into a special land
have you heard
they made a man but gave him,
the wrong woman –
as a companion
have you ever –
known such a champion?
a person who is sanctuary
from this reality

James Garratt – February to June 1995
