Spider: A Soldier’s Words And My Voice
I met a bloke in Macy's at Junction 2 Oldbury. I think I was writing some stuff and he asked what I was doing. We got talking and he told me he had written some stuff. He brought it the next week. He was an ex-para who had seen combat all over the world. He had witnessed some awful things and the poems reflected that. I said he should record them but they were part of his therapy and were too painful to revisit. With his permission, I recorded Spider.
