The First Visit by John D Robinson


Seeing him that first time,
came as a real shock to me;
as a 10 year old I expected
to see him shaven-headed
and wearing grey overalls
with arrows printed all-
over and maybe even chains
and hand-cuffs, just like
in the movies;
and we waited anxiously,
excitedly and then he
appeared dressed in
regular clothing with a head
full of hair and no chains
or hand-cuffs in sight and
from across the table, he
sat down, smiling and said,
‘Good to see you boy’
