Comments about Ray Mather
Two Boys Crying
Across the world
Two boys are crying,
Both wanting more
And tired of trying.
The first boy wants a mountain bike
And blames his mum for being mean;
Had enough of the daily hike,
He’s desperate to be part of the scene.
All day long
The wanting burns strong.
All the night
The wanting burns bright.
So little to ask,
Bikes are everywhere;
Oh, why is life so unfair?
The second boy wants something to eat
But is too weak to place the blame.
His mother weeps, helpless, dead-beat,
While his father hangs his head in shame.
Seven Haikus Of Man
Newborn baby steaming;
Brought suddenly to life,
He enters screaming.
Toddler, starts to walk,
Encouraged by all to speak
But told when to talk
Schoolboy grows a skin
The lesson learnt through teasing
Lock your feelings in
