LOST IN SPACE

Let loose in an international community,
I am either lost at sea, or a child in a candy store.
“How can we help you?” I am not sure.

If you’re looking for Art, it is in aisle 2;
Philosophy, Literary Criticism, aisle 3;
political discourse (minus propaganda), aisle 4;

Romance, fantasy and sci-fi, aisle 5;
Erotica, in the corner (big selection). I wander
(lonely as a cloud), lost in distraction.

Years have ticked by; opportunity comes and goes.
Carpe Diem! Hell, what is today? Lose track of time.
This is not a conversation, it is a rambling monologue.

Stage is bare, theatre is empty; I did advertise opening night
(Didn’t I?). Love might not based on merit, wealth or charm.
Regard, respect and recognition is. Tempus fugit,

time flees (or some other piece of learned Latin)
Let loose in an international community,
I am either lost at sea, or a child in a candy store.

“How can we help you?” I am not sure.
Maybe I’m happy, being lost and dazed,
dazzled, bewitched; even quite simply amazed.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp is a seventy-four-year-old member of The Society of Authors. He is also a bestselling writer. He writes stories that appeal to those who like challenging themselves to solve mysteries that are set out before their eyes. His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic incident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for six years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All ten of his novels are now published by Next Chapter Publishing Company which has added an edition titled The Heirs And Descendants Collection, which holds all four books of that series, alongside an edition titled The Lies And Consequences Collection which contains all four volumes of that series. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed executive of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel. He likes to write quotes and it's on Goodreads where you can find them--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151 An example of these quotes opens his novel--Once I Was A Soldier:--There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality. Less
