Critic – Written Monday 10th October 2005 (Aged 30)


the critic
they had not read my book
they said,
that they knew the story
the critic,
did not listen to the author
oh the pain,
of fairytale daughter
the critic,
that they already knew the story
she shed a tear or two
for a childhood teddy
but i wrote the book, i know my story
if you really want to look
and you really want to share
let me, the author tell my story
with you always there

James Garratt – Monday 10th October 2005
