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


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 couldnโ€™t suppress the fart heโ€™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 oโ€™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 Brian for liking my piece "I can tolerate Death". I like your work too! Writing about the things you love and doing it your way, without being pompous and pretentious makes you pretty unique! Kudos!

Gosh! Brian you're a dumping
A dumping hole for comments
Have you dug hole deep enough?
(My verse it does make no sense)

I came here looking for
Some gem to take away
But stumbled on these comments
I bloody lost my way

What more can I say? ....


I have been sidetracked nicely
I should be pulling weeds
Or getting off the carpets
Vacuum cleaner feed

Gotta stop Brian ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Thank you for your comments on 'Role Reversal' Brian. I wrote this several years ago after watching something about young carers on Tv. I caught something on TV last week about young carers and it reminded me of the poem so I felt I would share it.

You look like Jesus.

is Brill a fish?

Your scary photo
I don't get
and yet somehow
I must admit
for you somehow
I think it fits
a Kung Fu poet
in our midst.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the comments on 'Total Tosser' - very much appreciated. I'm glad the inclusion of the c-word didn't break your chilled time on holiday. Hope ou had a great time in Holland. Did you work on the poem 'Holiday in Holland'? - it definitely cries out to have something written, though I understand that what happens in Holland often stays firmly in Holland.

Sorry for the slow reply.

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!

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
