I really wouldn't get worked up about it Jackie. I was just pulling your leg. There is nothing more natural than the occasional raunchy poem - I've written one, Ann has, many on here have. Sex is great fun, it links us to animals but also separates us from them - cos they can't write about it...tee hee x

Yes well when I didn't put anything they did look at all the risque stuff, so I thought if I put a polite plea, then they wouldn't that was the thinking. It's like a no win situation! Cheers x

I always find your poems interesting and with a lot of thought behind them. I see from re-reading your profile that you look forward to criticism/comment etc. I don't know how often you make comments on other poets poems - if you do, you are more likely to get feedback from them. Good luck with it all anywaY! XX

Well I can only apologise for having misunderstood your poem, and for completely missing the re-cycling tray - all is clear now.
And as for the picture - I have seen some very pleasant ones of you ... and if you're going to have one that makes you look like something barking - perhaps Pekinese is not your best look? ... get yourself a brandy and you'll look a lot more saintly, Bernard!

I, too, keep coming back to this one - lots of layers and possibilities of interpretation. Good stuff. But I think I'd lose one of the 'and's from the last line - the first one, I think.

Hi there Bernard!
I like it ... have I said all this before? I quite like the idea of replacing spent bits with new, do the old get re-cycled? But why are both arms being exchanged? or does it indicate a change of mind? And why do I ask so many questions?
It really is nice to see you back here, and I'm with Janet on the photo.

Agree with ray about the preamble but actually, I think the whole thing is a bit short - I feel it tells half a story.
I'd start from one ward dweller ...
lose the quotation marks ...and take it away from there... love the last line.

Hello Jack thank you for your kind comments , i also have a monthly poetry column at www.pennyblackmusic.co.uk .
John is a really nice man , if you ever get to meet him you will have a great time, he is very down to earth and a lovable rogue. I have just wrote an article on him inc an interview. You can find it on pennyblack or next month I think it is going up on this site.
If you get to met Johnny you will have a good time he is really interesting and funny, say hello from me and tell him I will catch him again soon. Oh I nearly forgot as with everyones heros you do get nervous when you are with them but with John he makes you at ease and you soon feel as though you have been pals for years so dont worry, if you ever get the chance to meet him take it , you will never forget it.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments.

"Ian Dury meets Elvis"! Wow complements indeed...Do you mind if we quote that? ;-)

The music has been carefully constructed to complement the words so that, hopefully, the whole package is more than the sum of the parts. Glad you liked it and thanks for the welcome.
