Left For Dead

Left For Dead

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

The left has a lot to answer for!

I never got to shake
your filthy left hand,
it never left your left pocket,
where it jangled,
your short, loose, change,
as you put your left foot in it,
and on that Irish spade
with a long left side
for digging peat
from stinking
Catholic bogs.

didn't you learn anything at catholic school the left pocket is the deepest, and the shallowest and the wisest, with easy access to the scrotal sac, thanks to scissors and determination, left for dead … better check that (left hand) pulse, dude, no one ever checks the right sided,

Well, have a long and complicated story and started it as an autobiography on Bebo but got writer's block/memory fogging. People liked it though and kept asking for the next chapter! fools.. more..
