Clive James

Poem By Francis Duggan

Clive James the famous poet of Kogarah in Sydney will never see Australia again
Till the day he will die in England he will remain
Too unwell and unhealthy for to travel by sky
There even comes a time when the migratory bird cannot fly

On his seventy sixth year his physical best years long gone
But the great lust for life in him does live on
Diagnosed with leukemia from years of smoking and drinking booze
His battle for life he is beginning for to lose

As a writer and a t v personality he is known Worldwide
Yet due to his age and his failing health time is not on his side
But despite his great wealth and his enduring fame
That he cannot return home to Australia sad for him all the same

He has known and made love to some beautiful women over time
And though it has been many years since he was in his physical prime
And he may well have lost most of his sexual drive
Clive James though not physically well is very much alive

He still writes poems and stories and is sometimes on t v
But his home shore he is never more for to see
For in England he will live his last night and day
From Kogarah in Sydney in distance far away.
