'My terrible younger life by Forrest Bedford' by Brian Davis

Forrest Bedford was a lawyer on a TV series "I’ll Fly Away" who stood up for the rights of black people in the deep south in 1950s USA. (The series ran for 39 episodes in the USA between 1991 and 1993).

I used to say that this poem was by Forrest Bedford. Everything in there is the truth - no made up things in there. I wrote it because I wanted to clear it out of me.
