Aidan Hoyle's poetry


Franky lives from day to day
Trying to keep the world at bay
Evil vices lure him in
To places where the air is thin.

People try to put him right
But he just laughs it is no fright
The bar-room beckons before the night
But what will happen, what will happen?

His job'll suffer but he'll hang on
His wife rebels and just goes on
The kids won't know who Daddy is
Franky doesn't care his life is his.
