PUTTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
By Richard Hedley Atkinson / ack © 2008. All rights reserved.

i guess the big secret is
to
stay
about
twenty one

all your life
like the great late DJ
John Peel,

like an eternal
adolescent.

and never believe anyone
else

or the paper
or anything or a poli,
unless what they say, write , report

is really
the truth
and has feelings attached

which is hard to
find these
days.

because
it
normally hurts,

the truth
that is.

and makes
you want to cry

or laugh
or both.

a friend said there were no
more

poets,
only critters.

an American phrase
which can mean
a child

in a non nasty way,
more of affection i think.

i guess the great poet
must be a critter

to see and report on things,
feelings,
life

fresh
like a kid
with a dirty nose.

they tell me i used to be a kid
once

but i don’t believe
them.

i still want to sing in
a

punk
band
that would have me.

get into
the top
ten

of anything
still going
strong.

I’m not
that bothered
really.

i can’t write
anything
tonight

not drunk
enough.

so i thought
I’d write
this

just to put
the

record
straight.

it takes guts
and maybe some
drink
to really

tell the truth.
I’m still
trying

or at least i hope and prey
i still am.

but
i never
prey.

well i do,
but only

when
the
truth

hits me
between the eyes
of my very own mind

and can even cause
a

wry
smile or two.

even i have
too
sometimes !

no pain,
no
gain.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN !
and the IKEA regime !
