Ode To Edward Snowden

By Noel-Adrian-Hepworth

This is my gift to the heroic….

I’d bring you a quiche,
To feed your soul
If only I could.

I’d knit you a blanket
To block out the cold
If only I could.

I’d find you a wife,
Or something to hold,
If only I could.

I’d run you a bath,
And wash you tenfold
If only I could

Oh you salient renegade,
   You live your life in fear.
Fleeing fast, and hiding still
    Like Edgar in King Lear.

I’ll never stop searching for you,
In
My
Mind.

I’d salute you with a cask of wine,
Bring fish fingers and noodles fine,
And under starlight we would dine,
If only I could

find you.

    As far as I know, there is no Edward in King Lear…
