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.
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
