The Simple Things – Written September 2010 (Aged 35)

The Simple Things

i envy the folk
who do not question
who just go through life
and accept
for whom the so called –
simple things
become everything
i envy the folk
who never pipe up
never question
the world we live in
for whom all this
is just about everything
they are the folks
happy in their lives
husbands coming home
to, ‘dutiful’, wives
children,
all sixes and sevens
these folks
and their heaven
never questioning –
the world we live in
i wish i could be –
this easily content
ignore a world
so often bust and bent




James Garratt – September 2010
