Hi, I've had this profile a while, thought to re-open my account needing a place to lark abouts from time to time. Anybody involved with NE/Scar writing groups I would like to involve myself again. Mat, I, he headlined for Open Pen three years back, but 'life' and his new demanding, underpaid 230 hour a week support worker job has got in the way, of late, and working in mental health is affecting his mental health, hence this post etc..

VERY OLD STUFF, sniff No letter E’s in Mat’s world A military division of old march proud to this warning story of youth. ‘Many days past, a black knight would roam across moors, hunting for boys and girls And using alsatian warrior dogs that off duty, or back at town would (might) play luxuriant songs on piano and violin luring chaps to kiss a gorilla who drank whisky.’ GREAT MASTER’S EARLY HAIKUS In sand pit he wails weeping, as castle crumbles kicked by (the) teacher bad bully boy boils tadpoles in a bucket stew to feed street children Cod and chips ruined by rain, a lightening bolt burned down the cafe
