Philip Kerr

The written word upon the page

Comes from a human voice

That draws us in authentically

It speaks we have no choice


The power the spirit invites us in

Their inner world now mine

And so at home we settle down

And follow line by line


I have just discovered Philip Kerr

His final book my first

Re-reading him I find again

The reason for my thirst


Bernie Gunther Berlin cop

Solving Berlin crime

Lives a life of honour

Amid the murk and grime


The Church proposes saints to us

Their story lights the dark

Philip Kerr in writing

Gives us a vital spark


So now I have more books to read

Good writing to enjoy

I’ll let you know how I get on

Philip Kerr’s the boy
