Ode to a Wild Man

Written by Joshua Parry, August 2019

Oh wild man, oh wild man,
Look at his bush of beard,
Look at his big flat feet,
Ignore all the smush he eat.

Oh wild man, oh wild man,
Look at his horse mane hair,
Look at his string bean body,
Ignore his strange clothes all shoddy.

Oh wild man, oh wild man,
Look at his fearsome spirit,
Look at his courageous heart,
Ignore the smell of fart.

Oh wild man, oh wild man,
Look at the miles he’s walked,
Look at the friends he’s made,
Ignore how his toes have splayed.

Oh wild man, oh wild man,
Not far now from home,
In hugs you’ll be immersed,
Just have a shower first.
