As promised, here is the brand new poem written for and read by me at my friend's Glyn and David's Civil Partnership on Friday 27th April 2012... It's called THE WEDDING BREAKFAST and was written between November 2011 and April 2012. It took me a while to get it just right and was originally conceived more as a song or, at very least, a poem with verses. At one stage it was intended for reading at the reception - but when I was asked to upgrade it for performance at the ceremony itself I decided to make it one verse and rewrote a lot of the early lines. Thankfully it seemed to go down pretty well and I even ended up reading another wedding themed piece at the reception called A LIFE TOGETHER that I wrote a few years back.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!
Next week we'll be back on Wednesday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this blog; to launch a new SHY YETI ON LOCATION video and to discuss the forthcoming show at the Poetry Cafe on Saturday 5th May 2012.
P.S. Congratulations once again to Glyn and David!
P.P.S. Did I wear my red top hat when I read - of course I did! Photos to prove it next post!

It is time to duly toast the happy couple…
