Reposting this poem I wrote last year after hearing of Chopper's death today...
Chopper Read tweeted
he has just weeks to live
‘the big C’
typed the BIG c
‘they say that I am going to die’
of all people Chopper
you would know
death is a hard bullet to dodge
once you are in its sights
you say ‘there’s no way out of it’
you 'wont steal a liver from a 10-year-old kid'
life no longer yours for the taking
it is never to late to give
