Biography

My poems are observational generally, with a liberal amount of poetic licence where required. They rhyme, mostly. I've never entered any competitions yet I'm still surprised I've never won anything. I did receive some kind words from a teacher in primary school, but I think she probably knew I'd semi-plagiarised the poem.

Samples

WESTONBIRT ARBORETUM Arriving en masse in Barbour green middle class mummies in SUV's with kids named Willow, Sky and Breeze allergic to various nuts and cheese and designer dogs on ten foot leads (tripping hazards for OAP's) pooping in the fallen leaves beneath the beauty of the trees WAITING TO LEAVE HOME As they waited his eyes surveyed the room at all the things she'd amassed, so recently risk assessed. She'd become a virtual prisoner in the house she'd strived to own. The house she'd made a home was now a source of danger for her. As he wheeled her out the door she asked how soon she'd be back. Couple of weeks he lied. He felt his stomach churn. He knew she would never return. THIS FLING I'M HAVING I'm having a fling with a fantastic forty-year-old fat female from Farnborough. She's friendly, fun-loving and feisty. I'm fascinated by her full figure and the way she fills out her frock. We indulge in frenzied foreplay, we fornicate frantically and play find the fingammibob. Unfortunately I am forced to finish the affair as it's costing me a flipping fortune. She's frequently famished and forever filling her face... and I'm fucked if I'll finance her feasting! GIVING UP THE FIGHT Everyone said how smart he looked with his clean clothes and new haircut as he went out on his final night   And on his return at curfew they said he was happier than he'd ever been with no clue that he'd lost the fight   Found slumped in his chair at the table where he wrote poetry and song lyrics but that night the only thing he wrote was an unfinished unsigned suicide note

thanks for commenting on 'heatwave' Brian - yes - you got it perfectly - the tipping point between childhood and adulthood - forever warped by Thatcher and the uncaring Tory government. It shaped many of us - luckily I got through 😉

Normally
most poets are NOT normal.
Eccentric but not normal.
the only way to right themselves

Hi Brian
Like and comment much appreciated.
I hadn't truly realised what I was doing until it was carefully pointed out.

Your samples are the best of your work I have seen so far. I somehow missed them.

Have you just added them?

Hey Brian, that was great.
In particular the verse on WESTONBIRT ARBORETUM.
I could really visualize those middle-class wankers with their fancy-named spoilt kids.

Keep it coming !

Hi Brian
Merci
The Joys of Doing a Jigsaw
You'll notice that this poem doesn't rhyme.
The jigsaw nearly drove me crackers. Xmas pun intended.

Hi Brian
I'm truly flattered if/when anyone takes the time to comment on something I've written.
So thanks.
I'm a big believer that if I write a poem that rhymes, it should also have a rhythm. I also find that it makes it more suitable for reciting.
Again, thanks for your interest

Hello Brian - I commented on your "First" blog yesterday
(Saturday) afternoon but now it seems my wit has not been
appreciated on WOL and is nowhere to be seen.
Humour is not always a laughing matter, it seems.

But they're dead behind the eyes...

You my friend have eye for detail and a voice for much much more.

thanks for the comments on 'a poppy in winter' Brian - I do think the amount of poppy colours is getting a little silly - but the red is for remembrance and the white is for peace and the rest is for personal choice - the very thing that was fought for - so I'm OK with it - better to remember something than nothing at all

Haven't been on here for a while now, (Natures put a block on my creativity) so I missed your much appreciated recent comment. Apologies for this belated reply.
