This Soul is Not For Sale – Written October 2001 (Aged 26)

This Soul is Not For Sale

this soul,
is not for sale
big business,
will, for me, always fail
this soul,
its already been taken
by a dove
not by a raven or rook
write out a cheque
write a book
it is a mess,
big business
let it drain away
let the truth be told
this soul,
is my sail
it will travel across the seas
it will not fail




James Garratt – October 2001
