Surprise – Written Sunday 7th July 2002 (Aged 27)

Surprise

some people –
seem permanently perplexed
but they got the rest
some people –
fall for plasticine arms
you see them looking for self respect
and always coming to harm
they leave the door open
in a badly built barn
some people –
walk to the theatre
and wait for the curtain to rise
but it is not what they expect
they cannot believe their eyes
let alone the things inside
some people –
will die with a heartfelt sigh
and a disjointed tear
running from the corner of a tired eye




James Garratt – Sunday 7th July 2002
