King Kong

Garry Coulthard

I am KONG, hear me roar!
Masculinity anthropomorphised,
dominating everything before me.
I haven’t fought in years.

I am KONG. Master of all.
King of Skull Island,
I cried when Lemmy died,
I miss him.

I am Kong. Just a normal ape,
Not as strong as I once was,
back gives me a bit of jip in the mornings,
physio once a week.

I am an ape. Just an ape,
who wants a hand to hold,
needs someone to love and cherish.
It’s a bit lonely sometimes, but I’m okay.

I AM KING KONG,
and I just want to be left to live
my life for myself, able to drink
a pint quietly without mither.
