I Am!

 

I am a husband, I’m a grandfather. I’m a London taxi driver at times.
Often I sit at my computer writing silly rhymes.
I’m a cook, a washer-upper, a drink maker, and more.
I do so much that sometimes my feet are worn out and sore!

I punch the keys on my keyboard for a story to create.
But that makes me tired, so deadlines are often late.
I am independent, I’m selfish. I’m happy, but I’m poor.
One time I was employed working for the law.

If I was a comedian I’d make you laugh until you cry.
But that I’m not, so I’ll leave others to that and to try.
If I could make you smile and be happy for just a while
That would mean I’m still functioning and not yet quite senile!

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.
