ON YOUR BIRTHDAY

came over
all Santa
loving and giving
on your
birthday

and so
lost my chance to
sit with the unsaved
artists and
philosophers
chatting with
Shelley,Shakespeare
and Nietzsche

watching as the holier-than-thous
are ushered in
wondering at
what dark secret crimes,
what terrible hypocrisy
got them here
against their (skewed) expectations
as a writer relishing
exploring these
ironies-in-abundance

but I messed up, was
kind and generous (against
my true inclinations)
and now
I’m here

singing those stupid hymns
that they loved so much
(or indeed had
us believe they did)
those that
looking around

I do not see,
believe they must
be the exact same
sadly disappointed ones
in you, absolute and
total followers of
you

I will miss
for all
eternity, ones
I did refer to before
