POET BELOW THE EQUATOR

He was born in Poland and his words are hot
Not ice cold as though it might be there
He's down south is it winter or not
Either way I want him to know I care

Because it's difficult to be 49 years old
To wonder when it ends
Brought to life in the cold
Then there's the chill from your friends

When they do not give what you deserve
Leave you alone to write poetry
Let you wreck on the next curve
As your rolling down the cliff you see

All those faces that couldn't stay
The words that came weren't written down
As a poet the lines do play
A tune for the world all around.
