Sabre Tooth Tigers – Written November 2011 (Aged 36)

Sabre Tooth Tigers

sabre tooth tigers
and model dinosaurs
models made of lego
and dream like doors
matchbox cars
and tonka tanks
spirograph at christmas
and turkey? no thanks
jumpers knitted at home
an eight in the year
and treks all alone
school days,
smeared and stained
children from gated families
huddle in guilt and pain
how could my life
ever be the same
soaked to the bone
in the pouring rain
and the trick or treat
apportions no blame
it is just the fate that came
sabre tooth tigers
and model dinosaurs
but they never had
the most vicious of claws




James Garratt – November 2011
