it's not difficult. When not writing about himself immodestly
in the third person, he teaches children to sing, dance and

old ma formby
managed quite well alone
for seventy years or more on a dirt
road between clarendon and cherry gardens
a tiny curl of blue smoke
went up of a morning just to let you
know she was still going, like.
only met her once
pinching a willow branch i wanted
help yourself she said
there use to be a spring’ere
but the willow musta dried it up
people shouldn’t oughta
mess around with Nature itll come
back n bite em one day
we saved her cottage
from a bushfire once the last time
I went past the willow was gone
so was the cottage
she lived alone
didn’t leave a trace
