Eyecandy Monday - now with added Poetry!
When my writing first started appearing in print, a friend of mine Showed Me His. I have cherished a copy of this, his poem, all these years:
White Paper Before Me
I wanted so to contribute.
I really tried to write.
Sat before an empty page
I stayed up through the night.
It’d be so cool to be a writer –
A literary chap.
If only everything I wrote
Was not such utter crap.
I’d quit my job and write a book
Become wealthy, as you do.
Have lots of friends and lovers
And an Aston Martin too.
But dawn is at my window now
And my paper is still blank,
So I think I’ll take me off to bed
And have myself a bit of a lie in.
