mr nothing seeds

they used to call him mr nothing
one more eccentric josser but harmless
with his grammatical incongruousness
that has annoyed them sometimes

they used to say spell it out man
and then they laughed at his attempts
to explain all bizarre foreign idioms
spewed out of a park bench

they used to as he has gone once
leaving his tweedy trilby and a tiny plate
on the backrest of his favoured bench
now someone else amuses pigeons
