Many of the Horses Fall – Written September 2014

Many of the Horses Fall

proud to be, ‘fat’
but when the health problems confine you
will you look back,
and say, ‘proud to be fat’
perhaps i should start drinking
and cry, oh well,
when my health and body start sinking
maybe to add to it i should start smoking
all these statements are ridiculous
and come with an ignorant voice
because it others he are left to deal with a life choice

proud to be, ‘fat’…
proud to be, ‘anorexic’…
proud to be, ‘mentally shambolic’…
thinking of others perhaps the hardest choice of all
maybe that is why when they run
many of the horses fall




James Garratt – September 2014
