The tale of a man persecuted, abused, confused but resolute. This poem is more about the words that are missing than those that are present.

I want to write a poem, Jack
A tribute to your Craic, Jack
That gets you there and back, Jack,
Tell me, do you hear, Jack?

And can you tell me what, Jack,
I can use to rhyme with Jack, Jack?
The meter can't be slack, Jack
Please help me, any thoughts, Jack?

I saw you on the course, Jack
I saw you at the track, Jack
But you're not coming back, Jack
Not even on your own, Jack

Will you be in the town, Jack?
Hanging at the shack, Jack
And all the bric-a-brac, Jack
We'll all be having fun, Jack

But you are not so sure, Jack
Some things are out of whack, Jack
And some things seem to lack, Jack
And never do forget, Jack

I'm running with the pack, Jack
But I can call you back, Jack
I'll keep you smiling back, Jack
And never call you black, Jack

I don't know Jack. But if I did, I would tell you that I enjoyed this little bit of wordplay, so if my friend, Jack. But then, Jack's dead, so what does it matter.
