Stef, the only way out of the you-know-what is to reform to full reserve banking, and can't see that happening any time soon! Mind you, we did have it once so it's not impossible to revert back, trouble is politicians aren't listening.
I was shocked to discover that if the whole of the UK were able to pay down their debts at once there would not be enough money in the economy to do so, and we would still owe billions. That has to tell you how crazy the whole system has become.
Anyway, I'm spouting again, hope you and Patricia are well, and thanks Stef for your comment. L xx

I enjoyed most of this but felt it lost its way a little on the last verse - seems to focus on drinking, could maybe be tightened up?

I liked the beginning of this very much, but felt it came apart a little after the first verse, although I suppose that could be representative of his verbosity!

Ta very much for your note on The Process...I'm glad it's struck such a chord with everyone :)
Yeh, interesting thing that Artists Reward. Sometimes I find the only way I can put a 'remove' between reading the fucking thing 70 times and still being fresh enough to make important editing decisions is to leave it several days in between each edit. And of course a little wine and smoke helps with that too ;D
Ooo yeh, when it comes together - there's no buzz like it is there?! :D

They are all the same to me Lynn-
birds of the same greedy nest
who could'nt organise a you-know-what

If any of em were so clever
how come we are in and will be for a long time

Oui oui c'est un poème que j'ai composé. J'aimerai aussi beaucoup travailler sur des traductions Français-Anglais d'Alain Suied, mais il me faut plus d'assurance parce que c'est une poésie pleine d'image..
Que me conseilleriz-vous Yavonne?
Thank you Ann, :) this reflexion was coming to me after to read Blake :)

Thank you, Greg. Yes, the Greeks did not deserve any of their mess. But if I have explained it to one person then it is worth while. :-)

Hi! Re: your comments on my 'Compilation Of Words' - I reckon the best way to do what you suggest [and, being a visual artist too I like the challenge] would be to create something in Photoshop; any image used would not lose definition. Nice idea: I might go for it.

Re: the limericks - nice, although the third and fourth lines lost me and 'icicle' doesn't benefit from the [deliberate?] misspelling.

You are right, Ann. One can walk for ages around Bolton and never see anything of the St. Ives Festival which runs from 8th - 22nd September. Odd that. Please do your best to get the organisers to upload their events onto the gig guide. Increasing numbers of festivals are doing so since we adapted the software to make it easier to list daily events. Or if you can get him to talk to David Andrew: firstname.lastname@example.org?

I haven't been to Bolton so I can't comment. It's a shame you didn't see anything Jane. I suppose it's a bit like the St Ives Festival where one minute you can be walking round town and see buskers everywhere, open studios advertised with big arrows pointing you in the right direction, Bob Deveraux and friends entertaining a crowd in the square with music and poetry - and an hour later people are taking a break or there's indoor stuff going on and you could walk through the town and think nothing was happening. Little plug for St Ives Festival 8th-22nd September. (Did you see what I did there? ;)

Hi MC, thanks for the comment on my latest poem, "Fleeced". I am somewhat puzzled as to your rhyme though, as the subject was not about the work ethic, it was about private banks' ability to create money out of thin air as debt. This is affecting the whole world's economy.
