Richard Edward Cairns...born on a windy summer morning in Rochdale to an ex-soilder & a blossoming civil rights worker.went to school. grew up. Tried many jobs & 'careers'. was sucsessfull at most, but never enjoyed bein part of the system. Feel lucky to have found the love but emptied by not being theirs.if you 've met me i will have already told you i grow most my own food, & tried persuade you do the same. i'm passionate about music, but can't play an instrument. At all.Tried. live in abject loss. loss of love, loss of life, loss of any form of respect for the modern world. Other than all that i'm a pretty happy guy. i've wrote lots of things & decided to share for better, or worse, the results. Enjoy...or don't. Be Well. x


once i was a soilder, a prophet, profiting for love.. once i was a tinker. tinkering with time... once i dreamed in happiness.. now all my dreams are blind... once i was a surgeon, cutting off the waste... at times a fast car driver.. plumeting in haste... now all i am is nothing.. an every man, a loss... a drunken eyed broke gambler.. pitchin my last toss... once i was a sailor, ploughing up the seas... once i was slave master.. for only i was livin free... then i met disaster.. as all the gods do fall... such beautiful destruction.. i bent to sirens call... once i was a physicist, makin sparks from air... at time a wreckless wanderer.. doing all i dare... now all i am is nothin.. an every man, a loss... a drunken eyed broke gambler.. pitching my last toss... trk.x
