David and Goliath


Tiny thing a sling
To fling a stone
So primitive which flew
To slew Goliath
Fell from heights
He knew no more
His might so sore
It tumbled with a roar
To ground for David found
The little voice that told him
That he could and so he would
And when he did his world was rid
Of powers that had cowered him
A little stone
Against a mighty throne
Was all it took
For David, he was
Not alone
He had a little voice
That was his own
Which said he could
So David, of course, would…

Just for Now


Never no better

Than I can be

Never hopefully

The worse don’t

Ask for more

If what you’re

Looking for is not in

My eye or hand

Provision of

Do not deplore


For what you see

Before your face there’s

No disgrace in that

Misplace of judgement

Base of fact move on

Is what it is and

I am what I am no more

You are you’re your


Never before or after

Do we need to heed

A thing a deed

Just in the beat of time

Occurring now

Is how we are

No better than we can

Be as before

So if the door is open

Or is closed we know

No more than walking in

Tomorrow always shows us

Nothing but our shades

Stick to this pace

Fulfil our only

Time and space

With no disgrace

We place ourselves

In now
