A Walk on the Weird Side


CURIOUS CREATURES Twenty-six short, somewhat surreal animal verses, each with an illustration. These idiosyncratic ideas and ridiculous rhymes bear no resemblance to ordinary animals - hence 'Curious Creatures'.They were written some years ago, when I had a walk of about 2 miles from the college where I worked to my home. As I walked along I composed them in my head, hoping that I would be able to remember them when I arrived home! The drawings are by kind courtesy of a friend.





http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CLIKNWE PERVERSE PARODIESPerverse Parodies will give you a lift when you're having a bad day, or when the weather is getting you down. A collection of light-hearted verses, nothing to strain the brain, some of them with a little sting in the tail.The Nursery rhymes, which form the first portion of the book, are certainly not for children, but would not cause a maiden aunt to blush. The second half of the book contains humorous verses written when the fancy took  me, mostly some years ago. I enjoyed writing them - I hope you enjoy reading them.  


HERE BE DRAGONS!These are light-hearted and rather off-beat verses giving an alternative view of the story of St George and the Dragon.    With black-and-white illustrations - dragons, fair maidens etc.  


HERITAGE SIGHTA long satirical poem, in the style of Jonathan Swift. The verses comment on the work of heritage and tourist programs and how sites and events of interest are exploited.     Awarded the Swift Society Poetry Prize.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
