Diogenes


A clever but lonely young soul
(he was nobody’s foal)

His life was never a barrel of fun
When young he was podgy and wasn’t at ease
He was shunned or was teased
And called ‘Dodgy Knees’
On account of the way that he’d run

When adult he got off the fence
Dispensed with pretence
Causing offence with his outspoken views

Always breaking taboos
He was cynical
Sceptical
Heretical
Radical
Fanatical
Implacable

He just wouldn’t budge

Branded as quirky
He was kicked out of Turkey
By a rancorous judge
And he’s harboured a grudge ever since
