Beowulf, St. George, Sir Gawain,
fought monster, dragon, giant fleshed green.
Every hero sure has a dark villain
as both myth and history have seen.
Lilith was the first wife's name,
though bat-winged the woman became,
cursed Adam and then away flew.
So to Eve he turned to begin anew.
Around Ladbroke Grove
he was to rove
a broken-down guy.
An area of tribes,
artists and scribes,
his the load of many a 'high'.

and the vernacular voice.

A song for Da
and a song for Dem.
This song I sing
for the both of them.
They are the palms
between which I swing
like a hammock
in a Pattaya wind.
As the phoenix burns to ashes
so like the smoke to go rise,
burn to ashes my dead body.
Cast to winds beneath the skies
my remains, upon the very shore
where Viking long-ships went before.
