No - I think mine will stay on a page also Carole. Because of the subject matter, the poem jumps about left, right and centre. An audience really wouldn't get it - so what's the point inflicting it on them?

You've managed to convey very much within this constricted format, Kath - but I would have picked this out as yours without a name - a potted version of your style.

I admire it. There is much suffering in there which you convey in a matter of fact way. It makes one feel.

We had one (Michael Jordan) who stuffed a fat crayon up his nose and had to go to hospital to have it removed. Amazing that I can still remember his name, when I can't remember people I'm introduced to 5 minutes ago now - scary in fact.

Well Jackie Hagan certainly inspired you to write something...
You're a bit short on the 10 and a bit over on the five!
I like the humour - I would agree that Cilla's patter makes you want to puke and that she rides on the coat tails of the beatles. I did like Alfie though...and I do kind of identify her with the swinging 60s.
Jeremy Beadle would have been on my list too - though he was probably a nice chap off air.

Mmm - imagine a world where you prepared the food whilst she read the papers... now that might not be quite so cosy LOL!

I liked this one also - happiness/contentment is often in the little things that we take for granted until they are gone.

Hi Joseph - I think your poems have a strong confident voice, very mature (and no way am I being patronising, I would say this whatever your age.) I esp like the first eight lines, which I see as a first verse, I guess.

Tee hee - why don't you bend the rules a little and write a poem that is 10 lines long, 5 words each line, all about Cilla Black...

I'm just about to post mine now. It is a hideously restrictive form of writing and one that I won't repeat in a long, time, if ever - but it has been fun - of sorts - a bit like pulling your own poetic toe nails out...

It sounds to me like you have walked through the valley of death and come out the other side. Youth is all Joseph, learn from your mistakes and make the most of it.

I enjoyed your poem - though I didn't understand the german bit - tried googling it but it was taking too long - it doesn't seem to be a stock phrase...

this says a lot in a few words, olga.. excellent skill to show.. when i first started writing poetry properly years back - i stripped my poetry right back to as small as i could.

i think i can guess your influences in writing this (style wise) but did really enjoy it..

would like to see more in this style like this xx

I used to think I was my own worst enemy.But I wasn't sure. So I decided to view the matter scientifically,gather the facts, look at the evidence impartially. Turned out it was Cilla Black, she's my worst enemy.I'm only in 5th place.But does she really mean each stanza to be five words long, not five lines.

Ray Miller
Cilla
Black Killer.

What's it's all about Ray? Haven't you ever heard her sing Alfie? Forget blind date and those chicken legs - you have to admit that was a stonking song and her nasal voice was somehow right for it. That song even inspired me to write a poem - one of my very best!
