Biography

I play tennis...I started by writing poems about social events with my tennis friends. Since joining Write Out Loud I've started to write about other subjects. My poems rhyme, mostly. My influences are Sir John Betjeman, Pam Ayres, Clive James, Spike Milligan, John Cooper Clarke, Roger McGough, Alexei Sayle, Benny Hill, Jake Thackray, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Victoria Wood

Samples

the tennis boys picnic worcester beer festival 2013 on the day of the tennis boys picnic mike and stewie were hyper as elves their mummies had dressed them up nicely and let them go off by themselves they met all their friends at the beerfest and ran around laughing with glee they drank a whole bottle of tizer and everyone needed a wee the table was so full of goodies it could have been given the blame for third world hunger, or making the teddy bears picnic seem tame they clambered up into their high chairs and tucked into jelly and trifle martin ate to excess and couldn’t suppress the fart he’d been trying to stifle richie and chris had bad tummies and then just to make matters worse naughty elliot filled his nappy and had to be changed by the nurse by five o’clock they were exhausted their eyelids as heavy as lead their mummies arrived with their jim jams and took them home safely to bed

thanks for your kind comments on 'screaming blue murder' Brian - I don't expect everyone to like my particular political view - that's not why I post - but thanks you for seeing some merit in the form - if not necessarily all of the message :-)

Thank you Brian for commenting on "Who Am I". I like that your remarks always carry positive energy!

...and yes, a small little fire to call my own perhaps on a little beach out in the middle of nowhere together with my girl Cristi, Woof😊

Cheers for the comment Brian. I think I was the generation between CB radios and Chatrooms, but the need to broadcast your life to the entire world has always puzzled me (my FB account is a wasteland). Maybe the need for Drama to justify your existence isn't a new thing, it's just more visible.
I really appreciate you taking the time to read it, though. Much appreciated.

Hi Brian, thanks for the like on a Hot Evening....reading your biog I see you like Pam Ayres. I heard her interviewed on the radio recently. The interviewer asked her about her poetry. Her answer was interesting. I cannot repeat it verbatim but she said something to this effect. I don't know if it's poetry or if I am a poet. I write what comes into my head. What sounds right to me as it is spoken. I know the lilt of the words in relation to my delivery....Anyway I could relate to her description. Taylor

Hello Brian. Thank you for reading my poems and commenting. I find many of your comments challenging which helps me to look at what I've written from a different perspective. I like that, it will help me improve. 😊😊

Thanks for commenting on my poem, "Thoughts".
I take all comments seriously, although I am not.
I am concerned however with the photo on your site.
is that YOU? Let's hope not.
It is the scariest thing on WOL.
Perhaps you could consider using a different photo.
maybe a bunny. or a clam.
in the meantime...
Mary On!

Hello my mentor my friend.

You will see how my poetry is blossoming under your cultural guidance. I had to push my mind to it's limit to sort out you and Tyson. Got there after much scatological deliberating.

Hi Brian,
Thank you for your comment on my poem In The Tower.
While I was there I bought a little book written by one of the guards. It had a section 'things they say'.
One American woman arrived at the Tower recently and said 'it's great, but why didn't they build it nearer the Tube . . .?'

Thanks Bryan, that section is the longest because I spent 17 days there, the forth coming sections are shorter, good job I don't do it as one long saga.

Thanks for the comment on 'this is the news' Brian - yes - it really gets my goat how the BBC have dumbed down the news - and how much they tailor the stories to their own agenda.
I appreciate you taking the time to comment

thanks for the comments on the crossword thing Brian.
I love doing crosswords - but I let the Mrs do the one in the i-nespaper that we get - because she likes doing them too. This was written from her perspective I suppose - because she always asks me the final clue or two that she can't get and then says "How on earth did you know that?" The other day - I picked up the newspaper and looked at the crossword before she had started it - and though "I wouldn't know half of these answers" - but I still knew the final two that she asked me.

thanks for the comments on 'pub quiz theory' Brian - as with most things in life - we seem to have to make things easy for folk rather than test their true mettle - it get's my goat
