A will like a driving spear
Hugh Gaitskell
My first book
My entire career
Daddy who was he?
She is 7
Should she care?
He had principles and practicality in equal measure.
He believed in equality for all.
He was a rationalist and not an emotionalist.
The eyes glaze
The smile shrinks
She so wants to be interested
She so wants to care: but her paints are there
So in desperation: he had a will like a driving spear
What is will?
Will power, to do what you want.
Why a driving spear?
Because nothing could stop him.
No nothing, a spear that can cut through everything
With just what he thought?
Like a driving spear?
Yes like a driving spear?
I like him.
