Druids – Written Saturday 5th November 1994 (Aged 19)


the sky burnt down
the children learn
and the druids make more spells
to the secret place
where the storyteller tells
and for the news on the streets
the town cryer yells
do they not know
they have got to be wise
if they want to grow
they will need to open their eyes
especially if they want to know
listen to the druids,
listen to them

James Garratt – Saturday 5th November 1994
