Man

For Simon

Met you at Stratford Theatre
Behind the facades backstage
You gave me your number
Trips to White City council estate
Where the fresh faced writers passed through
You paid for ya boy’s studio session
Nurturing the talents around you
Your style made me want to write
Rappers know about rhythm
You were crazy but we respected you
Reticent mouthed
You passed my music on
It found the hands of those
Contacts built
Couldn’t do this off your back
Years have passed
You wouldn’t’ve guessed
The issues passed and faced.

Commentary: A poem written about my friend Simon aka rapper Mr Hectic, who I used to roll with back in the day, when I was creating hip hop tracks and writing rhymes. I did a performance of my rap songs at Stratford Theatre, East London, which the poem retells, where I first met Simon. He lived in White City then, where I used to go meet him. I did some work for his label back then called Dig-A-Ble records, performed with him in Camden, went to The Dairy to bus’ some lyrics at studio, and collaborated with him on the track Old Days.

Poem: Fashion Threads

Fashion Threads

I write of the things that connect us
Words on threads
Pathways in the garden
We are closer than you think
Though my travels have been
Long and far
I’ll soon return when
The harvest is ripe

Poetry: Han Xin’s Quest

Han Xin's Quest



By The Eaghams 

Was Dante's journey through
 Hell to redeem his shadow?
 Souls bunched together by demons
 Fervour, anger and lust whip
 The heart and relieve it's agony
 Through waves of elation
 Amidst the purification good
 Han Xin crawls before them
 Open and aboveboard the open road
 His benevolent heart for all to see
 In the interim years before
 The truth is revealed aplenty
 There is calm amidst storm
 Harvests and laughter in the garden
 That he first saw in Peruvian Wild
 Where Pandora's Box had opened
 They go out ahead of him

Poetry: The Things We Call Life

The Things We Call Life



By The Eaghams 

The boat it's sail follows the breeze
 It's flow
 To show us which way to go
 The flame kindled by the woods
 We call home of a flowering
 Forest gate where Henry VIII
 His name a gate came to hunt and play
 The annual rings of loyalty
 The populous of trees a generation
 Take us to the Tavern or Caravanserai
 Of the Good Man's Poetry
 Taking my coffee at the Station Cafe
 Writing these songs horizon of harbour
 Reading the epic verse of Derek Walcott
 Were philosophers seeking the basics
 Were writers penning the dynasty
 Of all that's related -
 Of all that congruent, straight up.

Poetry: Pilgrims Progress

Pilgrims Progress



By The Eaghams 

Looking out my window canvas frame
 I set out in the world of Pilgrims Progress
 Of mirrors and the characters of January dawn
 I paint a picture got it down in sights and sounds
 Reflecting the timeless flowing stream
 Flaneurs of our country observed
 The rocks from the mountain deep
 Unconcerned with how I measure up
 To a ruler in ruins of a great house
 It's key there's been doors in the hall
 To get past what we used to know
 Grounded before the ivory towers
 On the chessboard they stay
 Hands on the clock
 So no looking over our shoulders
 Run the leg of the journey
 We dont need to hold arms
 Eyes on our vision we hold fast to
 There's been bridges
 With sheaves of harvest
 as our rails
 Over the seas they run across
 The stream leads to the river
 The river to the sea
 The sea to the ocean
 Love my lineage to bits
 In all it's fragments
 That's why I know
 Were one tribe
