Best Poem of Joe Hughes

The Old Man At The Sea

He stands silently looking seaward,
Perhaps longing to be free?
To be free from land's firm clutches
To roam the endless sea?

Perhaps he's just a dreamer?
Staring at a peaceful tide.
Or was he once a surfer
Dreaming of huge waves to ride?

There's a sadness in his staring,
Looking neither left nor right.
Standing on a lonely boardwalk
From dawn to late at night.

His suit has seen its best of days.
His shirt unbuttoned at the top.
There's a pride - Yes! There's a longing
For his looking never stops.

Does he see his early ...

The Dementing Priest

I believe in God,
Or do I anymore?
I join my hands in prayer
But what for - I'm not quite sure.

I look into the mirror,
A dog collar I see.
I feel it, push it, prod it
And wrench it out - I'm free!
