He Knows Everything – Written April 2014 (Aged 39)

He Knows Everything

he knows everything there is to know
he knows what you should drink
he knows what car you should drive
and where to buy it
he seems to know everything
or at least how to try it
his mouth is like a open gate
he says his waist is a good 36
but clearly it is beyond 38
he seems to laugh but the joke is beyond me
he saddles up to women
and tries to turn his charm
but it looks like the fuse is faulty
either that or he was born in a barn
he knows everything there is to know
the world is not some great mystery
at least,
that is what he likes to tell you and me

James Garratt – April 2014
