Action Man

The fragile political hierarchy
Between client and crew and agency
Befuddles me
Client speaks to agency sotto voice
Agency to director in due course
Director to crew – do not interfere
Do not speak too loud or stand too near
Get a Grip on yourself
Set the scene
Mask the lights
Got Speed
And Action
The Big Mac
We stand
Our ground
As the heavens weep
And the earth trembles
To hear him speak
Behold my children, behold!
For one walks among you now so bold
Who runs with the lion and hunts the dawn
A voice thunders in the dark waterfall of night
A solitary birdsong a herald to the light

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.
