Embrace Your Body To Pass Through The Age Of Anxiety, by Danny Kemp (with due regard to WH Auden)


One doesn’t have to dress for dinner,
But if dining with strangers it’s probably better so to do!

One doesn’t have to be dressed to commit murder,
But if it’s a chilly night then be prepared to catch the flu!

One doesn’t have to be dressed to travel on the underground,
There are plenty down there already with a questionable background!

One doesn’t have to dress to play tennis,
The bits that wobble could be an advantage! Your opponent may be reminded of a brothel!

One need not be dressed at one’s own funeral,
Just employ a good mortician and leave a note saying your clothes were stolen!

Think of it this way; one is naked when leaving the womb, so why not be naked when about to enter a tomb?

Remember this, we are now in………..The Age Of Anxiety?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
