Islander

The man 
who came and 
never left
is
not afraid 
to wear bright  
pink—

the man who 
came and never
left is 
legend on the island—some say
he has 
no lower 
half—others that 
he has 
no bottom—

the man who came
and never
left 
is ruddy
from tough
work paddling in sun 
and sounds just
like tv's 
own Tom Brokaw—he's
easy
to find—hard
to talk to—simple 
and so sweet 
to hear—

in fact—

the man who 
came and 
never left 
will sweet-
ly say he's
only free
out in his royal
blue and awfully
skinny kayak—but 

you must 
take care 
not to
listen much—to 

a man who 
came and 
never
left—for he's really
only 
free
because—he's 
really—

really stuck.
