The Brown Paper Package - Poem by Andrew Nawroski

Being so bold and quaintly told
a thousand lines to be writ where given
They said in the end maybe it will be sold
so to this task I was whole heartedly driven
My pen I did scribble away until callus did show
and my eyes became all a quiver
Hair covering my eyes did grow
and my body did all a shiver

Month after month, year after year
scribbling away like psychotic clown
Some kind of story did appear
so I took it to the man down town
Who wrapped it in brown paper with string
It simply bowled me over the moon
So I went home and started to sing
The story that had taken so long
had aged me all but thirty year
And now became my favourite song
that I sing whilst having a bath without fear.
< br>As I lay long in my wooden coffin
and a blessing was given alike to my story written
Keeps a wide smile to this rested boffin
Who from brown paper wrapping will never again be smitten.
