Rhyming Yarns

I am predominantly a performance poet. These poems were written with the structure I use in most of my poems, in that I deliberately don’t write to any specific structure or form. I write as ‘I would say it’ and often mix structures for variety. These poems are longer in length. I have put them on a separate page because exasperatingly, in this world of technology, there are many people who roll their eyes if they have to read more than two paragraphs.

I was too young to remember Marriott Edgar, but people told me that my ‘rhyming tales’ were similar to what he did, although different in style. I have since listened to him and can understand the connection (although having listened to his monologues, I feel flattered. He was marvelous). I  believe his poems should be revered, kept alive and celebrated for generations eternal to enjoy. Sadly that won’t happen.

You could call these poems… ‘Poems for families in power cuts’… Looking at the news headlines and hiking fuel prices at the moment… Maybe you should bookmark this page!…
