Fixer

Swimming happily

in clear mindedness

his spirit was'nt going

to be savaged

like that of a child

brought to book simply

for being a child.

All he wanted to do

was to produce something brighter

than sunlight.

 

Someone like him

spoke according to his conscience

and not from the foolish heights

of assumed intelligence.

He could,nt utter words more honestly

if he were God himself.

 

He came to return movement

to a dying machine

to enlarge the importance of those

who go out and unwrap his word,s

of living truth.

no probs re memory Lynn
his name was..er...!

Seriously though,what is important
is that we remember good he did
for the ordinary person
and in turn,inspired many others
to do likewise.

Shame that lots of people like him
end up getting assassinated.
weird!

Thank you Lynn
P&S xx
