A Friend Named Dimbie


Dimbie? No! He is not gay!
He is just a real disaster
A natural one I’d say
Aussie says he’s wowser
But I don’t really care

He likes to get in the crowd
Normally to watch a fight
When all hell breaks loose
He runs away from the cops
Oh see him run with all his might

He makes me laugh
Gives me stomach cramps
He calls himself a bum
He drinks and he smokes
He likes pubs and goats

Dimbie is a friend
Sings to me when I wish
Tho I don’t hear the music
He is sincere with the lyrics
It makes me want to weep

For the ladies and women
Who ignored and loathed
You are missing a great gent
You can enjoy and gloat
His name is Dimbie and he is a friend

    Un momento gioiso della propria vita, espresso in poesia, riesce a catturare con la sua sensibilità il Peter Pan che si nasconde dentro ogni uno di noi, e con queste poche ma belle parole dovremmo ricordarci sempre di non perdere quella parte di Peter Pan che teniamo nascosto. (Report) Reply

    Kay:
    Very nice poem. To me, it reflects the words of one of those special people we chance upon in life, though all too rarely. A person who takes the time to understand and befriend another whom others have been too busy or uncaring to have been bothered with. Nicely done.

    that is a very powerful poem Kay... though I guess I'm not the most objective person to react! actually I do like geese more than goats. For the rest there is a lot of truth in this poem. So as Popeye says I am what I am. thank you very much Kay. (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
