A Poem by Gongleshanks

Here’s a poem from my magnificent book which came out last year. See how far you get before you guess who/what it’s about:-)

PIANO

In a winter white room

Stands a Grand piano

Silent,

Untouched by human hands

Un-played and silent

Composed

That piano stands

In a shadowy jail cell

Sits a man

Silent

Untouched by emotion

Unloved and silent

Decomposing

Sits that man

In that winter white room

And that shadowy cell

A ghostly voice

Is often heard

Echoing through the walls

[1] ‘Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too’


[1] Extract from Imagine by John Lennon
