About David Rollason

I am a writer, creative, inventive, observant, but the results are for you the reader to decide. There are things in my head constantly that I need to get out and into a readable form and this for now is my preferred medium. I am a simple being with complex workings. I am a complex being with simple logic. I am really just..... me.

    Good day!
    Here’s one I’m trying to learn for the Mango Lounge on Wednesday… which I’m honoured to be performing at.

    TRYING IT ON FOR SIZE

    Most of my life, it occurs to me
    I’ve been trying it on for size
    To see if it could fit
    If any good could come of it.
    Most of the time, I told myself lies
    And now it seems
    I have become
    A bigger woman
    Than I thought I’d be

    I’ve tried it on
    I’ve tried it off
    Tried and tried
    Until I tired myself out
    No doubt

    No doubt it was because
    I always was a bigger woman
    Than I thought I ought to be

    I thought I ought
    Ought to be
    A little smaller
    Smaller voiced
    A touch more twee
    A kinder sort
    Than I thought was me

    A softer kind
    A kind of sort of
    Gentler sort

    And I tried and I tried
    To be as I ought
    As I tried me out for size

    Then I gave up
    A hopeless case
    Only to find
    I’m a much bigger woman
    Than I thought I’d be
