Plenty – Written Thursday 20th May 1999 (Aged 24)


plenty of shelter
plenty of, ‘keep me warm’
plenty of good times
plenty to to borrow
plenty of this and that
children with open minds
children with equal voices
children playing without that fear
the one,
that somebody’s parents bring
plenty of food
plenty of things to do
one for me and many for you
never need feeling empty
there will always be plenty

James Garratt – Thursday 20th May 1999
