Ode to Eoin Morgan

Oh swinger of bat! Oh clubber of sixes,You who brings work to local roof tile fixers,Whether through off or through on you punish the widesAnd anything short is hooked away to the sides.You never let up, the glum bowler discovers,Smashing him calmly away through the covers,And we watch you intently up on the big screenAnd…


Midnight, beyond, and the calling,Imparting knowledge into darknessFrom the howling of hunting wolvesAnd the cries of scuffling cats.It’s a shame that midnight’s childrenAre orphaned so soon. Salman Rushdie, British Indian Author, was born today in 1947. Zoe Saldana, American actress and dancer, was born on this day in 1978.
