About Me

Biography is either masked ball or epitaph. As you find me, so we are.

This one's for the also-rans

This one’s for the also-rans
Who loved but whom love lost
Who also dreamt of making plans
But paid the higher cost
Who fortune favoured fleetingly
Although their moves were bold
Who never got the luxury
To see themselves grow old

This one’s for the also-rans
Whose passions weren’t returned
A boat not quite remembered
On a tack that seldom turned
Their features went unmentioned
Their novels went unread
Their details stayed unwritten
By the pen outside their head

This one’s for the also-rans
For they too made the race
Without their added ballast
It would run a different pace
So let’s make up the numbers
‘Til one plus one is three
This one’s for the also-rans
Yes this one is for me.
