"Andy Jolley"

Yesterday I sat

Where Neville Shute’s father prayed

In that little church at Egloshale

I wonder if he imagined

His son’s words would fly around the world

Just as his son did

Uniting Cornwall with Dublin 

With Burma and Malaya

And his beloved Australia

And who was

Just like my nephew Andy

Another of Wadebridge’s best loved sons

  1. I buy dog biscuits
    And funeral clothes
    Pleasure and pain

    Dark winter road
    Brings death to one
    Sorrow to so many

    I have buried my dead
    And shed my tears
    But Oh the burden of these years

    Too tired to eat
    Too exhausted to sleep
    The Hungry Ghosts return
