AntigonishYesterday upon the stair, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. Oh how I wish he'd go away .William Hughes Mearnes 1899William Hughes Mearns,1875-1965... US educator and poet... creditted with starting the idea of creative writing in education.Sometimes seen with the following verse included...When I came home last night at three, the man was waiting there for me, but when I looked around the hall, I couldn't see him there at all. Go away, go away, don't you come back anymore! Go away, go away and please don't slam the door.(Slam!)hope this helps...
A minister with a sense of humour - who would have thought it...?
I knew you'd know, Kirk! Thanks very much - knew it sounded familiar.
the Kirk parsons Reference library strikes again!!
also, apparently, it was the inspiration (in part at least) for Bowie's "Man who sold the world..."
