Best Poem of Mark Heathcote

River Street Urchins

River street urchins,
The gutters are swelling.
[Waiting…] for the sky—you and I
To reach—the storm drains of joy.
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…

River street urchins,
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
River street urchins…

Paupers oh, so giving, don't you know.
We'll queue in the streets
And pray to be free!
Till we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
On every official bank holiday parade:

Till we're free, till we're free
Till we're free, till we're free
Till we're ...

Too Differentiated

Oh, satiate my first with morning dew
I ask nothing more of you, I’m just a fool
I’m not as learned as many of you
Who went Harvard, Eton or Cambridge?

A much better school won’t do me
I’m simply too differentiated
And that’s what pleases Him & me
I’m just the simpleton you see.

[Hata Bildir]
