Hello! Yes... I know I only last posted yesterday - but I couldn't let Halloween go uncelebrated!
I will be brief, however and just post a new-ish poem which is suitably scary. It's from my forthcoming collection, A YETI WAY OF THINKING, which is due out in early 2015 and its all about zombies...
Don't forget to come along to tonight's show... We'll be at The Poetry Café on Betterton Street, London from 19.30 until around 21.20! See you there if you can make it!
THE GORGEOUS DEAD
Bargain-hunters made of bones –
Although deceased they know their stuff;
Despite their dribbling and leaking...
They're in their bestest bib and tucker;
They do stand out and they impress!
They're not much into conversation –
You'll soon attract the TV news –
They are looking rather swish!
All the others stink real bad –
But some undead prefer to use –
They will not hang out with a corpse –
Even those flies should dress up smart –
When the dead hunt for your flesh –
Doused in the finest aftershave –
The gorgeous dead are coming!
They stalk the streets, out on the hunt...
For some nice victims just to chew...
They won't get brains down their new clothes –
They're not as scary as you think;
They are a tough hard-working bunch!
They only want a little friendship!
Before they take you out to lunch...
We forget they once were people –
