Cheers Moxy,
I was considering giving up, I basically hit a wall where I thought I couldn't go any further with what I was doing but I'm slowly getting a feel for performing again and I'm even enjoying the bad performances I do these days!

Great pic, Cayn, and the gig sounds as if it was absolutely brilliant. Congratulations! And I didn't know you were even considering giving up poetry! You can't! You mustn't! You're fab!

Hi Sophie

Thanks for your comments and for following my links. Firstly the click throughs to gambling sites. I am afraid I don't know what these are unless they are advertisements by the hosts of my website. I do not gamble myself. As far as I am concerned anybody who wishes to gamble should be free to do so and I would not censor advertisements, but it seems a rather silly activity.

I am certainly a strong advocate of free markets and the economics of von Mises is not only sane sounding it works. Most notably it works to remove more people from the misery of poverty than any form of state intervention has ever succeeded in doing.

It is a tragedy that most of the world lives in economic misery. There are many causes for this and none of them come from free market activity. Major causes are protectionism by the rich nations and the maintenance in power of murderous, thieving dictatorships by international aid schemes and NGO's. It is actually the mega rich, like Gates and Buffett, who are doing most to alleviate 3rd world misery through their well run charities.

Obviously there is much that we could debate, but perhaps a poetry site is not the best place to do it. Can you separate art from the artist? No, probably not. That sometimes troubles me when I know of the racism, sexism and bigotry of the poets whose work I admire. Life isn't easy. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to challenge my views or put anything to me.

A fabulous poem, Morag. Some great lines in it, my favourites being:
Woman growing, woman stretching,
Through the shiny skin of girl

the woman growing through the girl is such a fantastic image

and

Through my blood new life is flowing,
Through my veins all futures pass.

the role of women in continuing the species is write small but understand large, in these two lines.

Though one line does not scan, for me:
So may taint me, saint, paint me,

I feel there is a syllable missing. But perhaps I am wrong?

Thank you for such a fabulous poem.

Julian

Thanks very much Clarissa.This is an account of an actual event. Travellers put their horses into a field next to a house I used to live in. They were there for some time and we enjoyed their presence. When the stallion was delivered one day everything changed. and it was pretty much as I describe in the poem.

Sorry I have noticed a typo. It should say 'crunching' in the last line of the penultimate stanza.

this is an amazing poem about the testing done on animals in the name of science and product safty for humans. It burns me to the core that they do this, I do the best that I can NOT to purchase products that are tested on animals. They do the most stupid things like spray mouth wash in their eyes, of course it hurtsand would harm a human, however if your stupid enough as a human to get it in your eyes then...well, must be retarded. ah great job!

Aperitifs-a-Plenty and the recrudescence of decency to intellectual joy to you! You are an harlequin with a wooden ruff which people mistake for a picnic table, spreading their molecular gastronomic foams like sterile cuckoo spit across it. Hey, but they're the kind of people who can find Nature in an upturned tub of generic curry powder, so what the hell! Lord-a-bless thee for thy beautifully conditioned, cask-matured words!

Pete, I'm fast running out of superlatives for your work and this piece, both its contents and your vocal delivery, are superb.
Two of my children were born at Billinge Hospital by the way. It didn't look much different than your picture!
Anyway, once again, an excellent piece of poetry. Now, if you don't mind I'm off to get older.

Hi Gem

Welcome to the sane and sensible world of Malpoetry. On return from Bordelleaux, Pam and I went to an absurdly expensive and pretentious restaurant where we had about 8 courses of tiny pieces of food and froth, then we went to York to visit our granddaughter at Uni where we stayed in a smarty pants hotel with yet another restaurant meal. Drove through glorious English countryside to the Lake District and another flash Hotel, Dinner in a swanky restaurant and then drove home. Never stroked my chin once and hardly ever commented on the architecture and paintings.

Retired Chinny Winny.

Revolutionary working class poet.

that's no rant Mike,as far as I'm concerned it's got everything a poem needs, metaphor, feeling, message, multi-layered, but accessible, all packed into a neat well-crafted bundle of lines. Cheers, keep up the good work.
