Glen Martin Fitch


I try,  
I'm sure like you,  
to do what's right.
For jobs well done 
I wouldn't mind a raise.
I think I'm kind,  
I fight injustice as I can.  
I don't need praise.
I sometimes do things wrong. 
When 'Who's to blame? ' resounds,  
I hope I'm first to say,  
'It's me! '
Then there's the acts 
I should have done. 
What shame from 
'That was YOUR responsibility.'
But what about the bad 
I didn't do?
The pie I didn't eat?  
The words unsaid?
Would I be thanked 
if everybody knew?
And if the world were just 
I'd like instead the cash 
I didn't spend on booze and bets,
on drugs and porn and 
shoes and cigarettes.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
