Wrote a poem about Morrissey shared via true-to-you.net ("ORDINARY POEM BY AN ORDINARY MAN FOR THE POET MORRISSEY", November 10, 2014):
Morrissey, one of the greatest poets of any century
I sometimes reckon I'd rather a frontal lobe lobotomy than be cursed with a brain of such searing primed lyrical monumental pain
For I have sorely realized that to overtly analyze and incessantly scrutinize entices demons to set up camp in the cranium
Yet Steven pat ventures into these very camps looks these terrors up and down with a magnificent frown
and bursts into sublime siren song seduces them by the flickering firelight then lies in their Araby tents with them all night long dreaming of an even more malevolent camp to come
then at dawn sneaks away before they ready the cage back to the studio, then stage and with lust loathing and rage sings their praise as they weep for his absence through this maze of apathy this sage soldiers on gallantly through the storm
gracefully, forcefully, valiantly, I think he's rubbing off on me
this damned elusive Morrissey
