Ian Boyne - Profile of a man

 

Larger than life

Our living room guest for almost thirty years

Mesmerised epics of blood, sweat and tears

Stories of triumph

Tumbling fears

Many would give up

But for inspirational feats

Thrashing the odds

Winning the fights, singing the songs

Of endurance, courage, love and sacrifice

Hard Talk

Knocking dogmas, tenets, beliefs

Boiling point views

Interrogating

Fundamental

Platform for emerging and new

Affirmation of faith

Unyielding, unflinching

Challenging, disagreeing respectfully

Holding hard end in this life domino game

Key

Well played!

Game shuffle

Hand draw for another time and place
