12 Men are Gone Today.

12 men are gone today
not down to the pub
but to slip away
not to a casual fling
or to cheer their team on

12 men have gone today

managed to push through
youth , money, plans, children in mind
then they come,
 then they go


12 men have gone today

Why are more middle-aged men turning to suicide?

David was born in Liverpool in 1964. He left school with nothing, rummaged around various dead end jobs, then back to college and uni. In his 20s he first discovered poetry, starting writing and performing and has done so ever since. He has lived on the Wirral for the past 8 years.
