I came back from a trip to the United States with envelopes, airline serviettes, internet booking forms and basically anything that a biro could mark permanently full of scribblings which I have fashioned over the past nine months into a series of poems. Morbidly fascinated by Fox News Live, witnessing the beggars of San Francisco and New York (give me a dollar to insult me!) and - at nearly fifty - starting to get an opinion, finally after two Gulf Wars and the threat of a third in Iran! Having joined Write Out Loud, I've been asked to say I'm based in France, but don't hold that against me!!! I'll be coming to Betterton Street soon.
On watching Fox News It's easy to be confused By the language that they use. The most evil you've ever heard In the name of the spoken word. They say the spin stops there And they pride themselves on being fair, But argue if you dare, You'll be frog-marched off the air. Twenty-four hours a day, Seven days a week, Fox has found a way to change Spin to double speak.
