When first arriving in Stockport
I was the new boy.

Feeling isolated unable to speak
I found myself in exile.

Which is the selected theme
For Stockport Write Out Loud.

Well, Greg has taken me down memory lane: let's wait and see what he found there.

And, yes, if we can find any other attendees that would be good.

I have feasted my mince-pies on your comments Jackie and Harry and found them very digestible.

I know!............I'll get me coat!

The missed out line of 'us' being caked in oil isn't missing anymore-if you care for 'seconds'.?

"Why create when you can sleep, dream

Why sleep when you can create, dream

Why ask when you haven't got a choice

Why choose when the outcome remains the same'

This is modern day angst at its best! Hard hitting realities.

Good one Laura!

Your idea is not at all squalid
Think of our excreted `solid`?
How useful it is to the nation
All re-cycled to fertilisation.
And spread over meadow and fen
Till we all masticate it again.

Your idea is really quite smart
When you start thinking of it:
We eventually eat our own shit
So why not combust our own fart?

I was pie-eyed after reading your poem.
It certainly takes the biscuit.
Is it lunch-time yet?
I don't know why but suddenly I am feeling really hungry.

Bit of a rant going on there guys, but then poetry is definitely the place for a good rant. I did find those last two lines a little predictable though, I was almost waiting for them. Personally I think I would have left them out. But that's just me. Thanks for sharing :-)

I love the language in this and you are obviously not too young for the odd little bit of verbal incontinence, only when necessary though of course.

Hi Laura, the one-legged dancer is metaphorical in its feeling of unsteadiness and the rest are analogous to uncertainty :) I don't know how to explain better ! Graham, thank you. Also thank you for finding me beautiful :0 Tilly, you are very generous ! Andy, thank you for reading, as always :)

Quite different from your usual styles, Harry. But I think it works. I like some of the antiquary-style of language but I thought the Pity/probed/prised etc alliteration a bit overcooked.
Interesting issues of free will raised by the content.

John,
Concerning your ring of fire:

Could I recommend my thirty two ply, Teflon-coated, non
stick, finger-proof, indestructibles (which one pulls
through from the front continuously until a clean sheet is sighted)...they`ve never failed me yet.

Thanks for the laughter.

Graham,
This one seems to be in a kind of indigestive
doldrums.



The trouble about calling for change is that someone
with no sense of humour always makes the unwelcome suggestion that we should change ourselves.

(I like the `yakky` words in this)

Steff,
have you been going to the same church as Rose?

After this hurricane has struck and you`re stood there explainin` why you wrote all that poetry about a straw house and tryin`to defend yourself on the `strength` of those rickety last two lines don`t stand anywhere near me. :)
