The Ex Shearer Jim

In pubs in country towns he often drank until closing time at night
But Jim always jovial one who never looked for fight
In his prime ten years ago things are different for him today
Some do have their crosses life works in this way
One disappointment can lead to another in life
The woman he was to marry did not become his wife
She said she loved him but after his accident on marriage to him she had a change of mind
To the cards life has dealt him he now feels resigned
Though a motor car accident has left him in a wheelchair
He never complains or says life is unfair
Jim in his late thirties feels glad to be alive
With a smile he says only the lucky bad accidents survive
Though life it has not been at all kind to him
He is happy to be living the ex shearer Jim.
