T E Lawrence

(to T. E. Lawrence)

Streaky’s been where you don’t go
Streaky’s seen what you don’t see
Streaky knows what you don’t know
But Streaky isn’t telling – he

walks amongst you
talks amongst you
sits amongst you
sips his tea

But then he says ‘No, not for me,’
And his voice is soft and slow
As he repeats ‘No, really, no,’ –
And Streaky’s back where you will never be.
