Ode To Leonard

You who transcend the shallow depths

Of commercial rants and ravings

You who labour, out of love

To satisfy your honourable cravings

 

Though some of you have fallen

At the alter that you serve

And further true, that so few of you

Have found what you deserve

 

For to be what you are and not what you aren’t

To produce what it is and not what it wasn’t

Is your only sin, your only failing

The muse of ‘The Label’, a banshees wailing

In your depths of despair, the weak and the strong

In your gardens of Eden your towers of song

 

Stay true my friends, transfixed in thought

Creative in your vision

Let not the chains of commerce

Bend your knees, in indecision

 

To work for pay, is not your way

Be paid for work you’re doing

Enrich the World, with poem and song

Though that be your undoing

 

For to be what you are and not what you aren’t

To produce what it is and not what it wasn’t

Is your only sin, your only failing

The muse of ‘The Label’, a banshees wailing

In your depths of despair, the weak and the strong

In your gardens of Eden your towers of song

There will only ever be one they call Leonard . . .

    1. Thanks Mel, though I am unworthy of such a statement, to me Leonard is the epitome of the struggle between good and evil the right in right and wrong and the hope in hopelessness . . . He is wisdom in human form! a hero, as Kris is to me . . . xxx
