Chatterton & Gordon


the poetry of Liverpool born and Wirral based Jim Gordon....

accompanied, live, by the guitar of John R Chatterton


'There's a simple explanation
Vertigo
I'm afraid I'd fall without any provocation
i'd be the unlucky one where the harness snapped


or I'd be trapped on a ledge unable to budge
frozen to the spot;
climb ev'ry mountain?
i'd tell 'em where to go
if they suggested scaling just one peak
I'd freak out;
you can suggest it, I'd say
you can moot it, I'd say,
me do it, I'd say,
me NOT do it, go away, I'd say!

It's not the falling that bothers me
it's the dying
and I'd be lying if I said otherwise.
Everest?
I've no interest,
the Matterhorn?
It matters even less;
I don't mind hills though
you can't fall off a hill
but you can fall off a mountain.

Climb ev'ry mountain.
it's an idea I've always discounted
it's not for me
it's not a box i'd tick,
I'll leave it to the mountaineering fraternity
and to the 'Sound of Music''

Jim Gordonยฉ
