David Franks Week - poem by Adam Robinson

Bolt Thrower

Last year you were the Emperor of Hampden
You were a benevolent emperor but
Sometimes I couldn't understand your words
You spoke too quietly in loud, crowded bars
Still you seemed fantastically interesting
In your wide-striped shirt you looked good
I'll just say it you were a good-looking man
I remember some zipped-up brainiac read, uh, poetry
You kept heckling, you were in tune with everything
You were the funniest heckler I've ever seen
I'm sorry you died before you finished your website
Now you are in the big network in the sky
Do they give you business cards when you die?
Do yours say Emperor of Hades?
