Clark-Hickling, a friend of mine

He fantasised about his suicide then mystified by those thoughts
He took a pencil, coloured all the squares and left all the noughts.

He ruminated then brooded then braided his hair,
Stared at the devil and accepted his dare.

The devil stated that he’d reinstated all the Angels back home,
So the man who had fantasised, the devil’s hair he did comb.

Looking into every Angel, every moral and every head,
Is not something for everyone; it’s best left to the dead!

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.

  1. Interesting as usual Danny. You certainly have a wonderful gift. You reminded me to be aware of the demon dressed in an angel’s cloak. :o)
