The Poem

presses smitten
spirits broken
shortwaves jammed
dissenters blamed and jailed
world in a shame
nobles going insane
its l
raw and dry
to the rescue
retrieved from the blue
l laugh at this zoo
called the world
of mortals insecure and cold
l am
the Poem

l imply
and cry
til pens run dry
poets and none alike
test my psyche
l am generous
and handle any fuss
l appease
and please
the kings
in their ditherings
l am
the Poem

l capture emotions
of individuals and nations
am misused and abused
hailed and booed
l am adaptive
ask the captive
l dine with despotic beings
l roll in verse streams
filling writers’ dreams
l am
the poem
l entice your fertile imagination
uprisings are when l spare an intoxication
i possess
undress
and caress
at times l do bless
am whispered at weddings
as they exchange rings
i carry you to the grave
i entertained too many a slave
some hunter splattered me in a cave
the poet is just but a vehicle
l accommodate any syllable
the pen is my benefactor
without it lm delivered by the orator
l am
the poem

New Media

We have just finished the second series of short, educational films about the History of Lambhill. Three years in the making and available for viewing.

The History of Lambhill Village Glasgow Scotland.
written and narrated by C21 Troy

Made over 3 years, The History Of Lambhill Volume II  video is rich in content, providing information about the village’s humble origins as part of the Bishops Forest, in the 13th Century right through the industrial revolution, it’s eventual decline and now to it’s place today as a community in the process of rejuvenation. Featuring a wealth of archive material, new illustrations and anecdotal stories from local people,  all put together to make “The History Of Lambhill Vol 2” an interesting, educational documentary resource for local people and Historians of the City of Glasgow alike.

The History Of Lambhill reflects the history of the city of Glasgow and viewers will gain so much knowledge of both after watching it.


More details about this production to follow.

We are currently working on the final stages of a self produced, 30 minute documentary feature about the Cadder Pit Disaster of 1913 which should be available to the public on our youtube channel soon.
