2051: Keith Moon’s Burglar

Dad was radioed to attend
[a certain] K Moon’s palace
on St Anne’s Hill – A report –
of a break-in – Tara was set

by Italian Job cash – Keith’s
nerves were a problem – in
wind & rain Dad turned up –
Tappin’ on me window – as

a click-track – a beat – tricks
of lights – blown branches –
Keith was alright – Fear will
induce scattered thoughts

said Dad – After it all – a few
years later Dad had a stone
[bagged] – it was evidence –
Retrieved from a girl’s head

[post-mortem] – I caught it –
a weight – a rough bullet – it
killed her – stone dead [a PC
joke] – by then he was SOCO

& exposed to mortuary-life –
a handler of prints from cut
off wrists – but years before
he kept a rocker solid – Only

a deluge, Mr Moon [he said]
as rain fell [throughout that
night] – My Dad was never a
fan of music [rock star crap]
