David Jones' Locker

Another really does celebrate a birthday
And one who was not ashamed to be gay
Or, at least - of shared sexual proclivities
Who, even, on film, shared these activities

A man who could be seen as the ultimate rocker
Especially, once he'd chosen to open his locker
For this brilliant fellow could really be seen to be
A true original ... for his alter-ego - David Bowie

I saw him live back in the really early days ...
Playing in a small house along Strand way
Doing that very first space number all alone
Back in the days when he was still David Jones

Happy Birthday, David ...

- Tristram
