kipper Stagg Poems

And Job who was a God fearing man, and worshiped the lord and carried about his duties as best he could, looked upon his life when it was all done and questioned God saying
'Did I sin? Was I not your most humble servant, fearing you? Honouring you and worshipping you? '

'Yes' said God ' none where so true and faithful as you! '

Subdued they sat waiting for the final chapter of their meaningless lives.
Insulating themselves from bitter truth of what may come
Not knowing what to do with hardened truths,
Advice they'd seek from dominant sergeant majors.
...

“Hail Mary full of grace”
He gazed at the statue robed in blue and white.
“Hail Mary full of grace”
He chanted constantly all day and all night
...

Self questioning, like the ancient Pharisees or Doctors of law, his motives in life, he was not so sure.

Demanding answers for his actions he could not give,
Whilst struggling with his emotions the reasons he should live.

I remember you!
You used to scour the halls and corridors looking for sinners and the soulless to burn at the stake!
...

Oblivion.


Solemnly we remember you but once a year with sullen face,

She sat all knowing, all seeing. Listening as she had done a thousand times before
to the ramblings of life's fool as he told her how he'd crashed hard upon Life's concrete floor.

Confident she could persuade his doubting brow to take a different direction,
...

They sat perched high gazing out over Gods creations in awe and wonder.
Half a century together and never a day apart,
Yet off in the far distance he could hear the roar of thunder.
And to safety they would run laughing, holding hands with love pulsing through their hearts.
...

How he'd longed for ancient summer's days,
Running through long grass, voices of children in play!
Bright sunbeams upon his face,
Searching for that perfect hiding place!
...

Oh! How we glorify War.
Or brave lads are doing such a fine job,
Fighting for democracy like they had a thousand times before.
And we’ll all bask in all their glory.
...

I held a sunbeam in these clumsy hands gentle but so short
Its light shone so brightly that for a moment I was blind,
I had held others before but their light quickly faded to a dull glow!
...

He had said 'enough', there was nothing left to tell
People had seen enough of the visions of his hell.
“I shall write no more! ” he’d said his pen had run quite dry
And anyway every word he wrote would bring tears to his eyes.
...

On the first day God said “let there be light”
And there was light and God separated
Darkness from light and this he called “Day and night”
...

I used to listen to you talk about 'Compassion' and love and how we as a society have become selfish and greedy.

And oh! How you loved it being the centre of attention vying for everyone's affection your sermons encapsulated us like a well fitting glove

You smiled and my world fell apart
You didn’t know the power you possessed
Whilst playing with your friends in the park
If you could but feel this beating aching heart
...

Out of touch! thats what you are.
too much monie and a fast car.
sitting there like some kind of king.
whilst all through your life you've never learnt a thing.

You fell like a teardropp into a pool of grief
and although I lost sight of you only the ripples remained
and slowly they to would disappear
and although I could not see you I knew you where still there

You'd thought they learnt by past mistakes
How many lives that it must take
To learn where youth and laughter go
To fight in war for one last show

Was it not enough?
Did he not suffer quite as much as you’d wanted?
Was all of this folly just what you’d needed?
Had he not witnessed all ill's of men and was his despair taken

Youthful pride drives us to despair
Wondering about the “why's” and “where’s”

Youth sat looking at old age,

kipper Stagg Biography

Brought up on a council estate in South London,
Left School at the age of fifteen years old
The Middle child of a single parent family who had seen the very worst life had to throw at it
But somehow survived it all until now! one time socialist now disillusioned with all political systems
And if I had to label myself I would say I am a Zeitgeistian.

The Trials And Tribulations Of Job

And Job who was a God fearing man, and worshiped the lord and carried about his duties as best he could, looked upon his life when it was all done and questioned God saying
'Did I sin? Was I not your most humble servant, fearing you? Honouring you and worshipping you? '

'Yes' said God ' none where so true and faithful as you! '

'Then answer me this asked Job? why put such pains upon a man as he lives his life so full of strife
And pain and sadness? '

'As a test 'said God! To see how far pain could go until a man such as you breaks and looses faith!

But lord! Surely you can see into mans heart and know who's righteous and faithful? Why the need to test and tease a sole if you can truly see?


God replied! ' I may see into a man's sole yet Satan can not so a test I gave you to show him the true ways of faith! '

'But is that not gambling' asked Job questioningly 'and is gambling not a sin! To whom do you answer for such short fallings? '

God was not pleased with jobs questioning and pride took over.

'You have earned your place in haven, now stop questioning me and be happy with what I have given you for there are many who would trade places for what you have! '

Job replied 'paradise I may have but the memories of your spite I can not forget and all this pain for just one Bet? '
