(a Poem Of My Island) 2- The Man With No Life - Poem by Timothy Venard

He does nothing all day
He just sits there and stares
He has nothing to say
And no one who cares.

He once had a wife,
(Or that’s what I heard)
She ruined his life
Now he won’t say a word.

And who is this man with this trouble and strife
He has no name, but the man with no life.

    This is a good poem. it has a pleasant resonance. Your thought is carried through and summed up nicely. I might suggest one change in the last line of the second verse. Instead of 'No', how about 'Now'.
