Hi Mirna, more stirring stuff, there appears to be one hell of a struggle and I hope you have the last laugh, love this -

A great bow for your success
I lost the battle, I confess
But life is like turning wheels
Winners will face their defeat.

Thanks, really like your work, Jeff

Peter Crompton is a phenomenon! He takes to the stage like a commando storming a beachhead taking no prisoners! His machine gun delivery can shock and rock an audience but he has a distinctive turn of phrase that can explode like a grenade in your consciousness and leave you gasping or laughing uncontrollably. At the top of his form he is simply unmissable!

'that green David Cameron sucking teat' yeah well this is a bit of a nipple sucking craze. Trouble is depends on your politics. However, a nicely provocative poem. I do not wish to reveal mine. But enoyed the point.

Lots 'going on' i feel, in just a few simple lines. The true beauty of poetry.
Do you have a garage where you keep these poems Pete? A lock-up, maybe?
I actually prefer this more gentle sounding PC than the one that i read and sense the ranting. I absorb more this way. Beltin' (as they say in Wigan).

Oh, Louise, you are such a flatterer! Thank you for your blush-making comments. What a good excuse to read your works on here, and thank goodness, really like them...

I really enjoy the rhythms you create. There's a real beat and flow to what you write, never mind the wonderful, graphic imagery of your words. Simple, stark and too, too evocative...

Sandre, this is one of the best lines in a poem I have heard in a long time. The whole poem is delicious, but stanza endings are just superb.

this is such a clever poem and I love the way the disjointed format suits the awkwardness of young love. I think the repetition of first and last line is very effective
