In what I hope will become a feature of this blog I'm submitting some poetry for your perusal. As stated I've recently taken up the guitar and I'm banking on this leading to a career as an internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter and a life on Easy Street.
The Drowning Sailor, The Blind Man and The Burglar by Valentine Suicide
"Glug Glug Glug" the drowning man said,
As he sank to the bottom of the sea,
"I really shouldn't have jumped off that boat,
without a life-jacket attached to me".
"Ouch Ouch Ouch", the blind man said
as he bumped his knee on the chair.
How did that thing get over here,
When I left if over there.
"Steal steal steal", the burglar said,
as he made off with all my wares,
Me TV, me video and me Swiss army knife,
and me fridge, full of chocolate eclairs.
*Takes deep breath to recover from the emotion of the 'reading'
Obviously it benefits from a very moving performance piece/mime that goes with it, which I'll put on Youtube when I can be etc
I'd really appreciate some honest Simon Cowell style criticism, so go on, have I got any talent?
