Poem from Swimming with Endorphins

Garden As Circus

Windy Autumn day, overgrown lawn stands

diagonally on end like teenage pop star’s haircut.

In dancing tree, a blackbird snaffles precious,

remaining orange berries in yellow beak,

balancing, fluttering, almost falling off fragile

branch that flutters in its turn, intermittently

tickling the washing line. I stare and silently dare

the blackbird (let’s call him Cedric)  to tightrope-walk

along the washing line. Alas, he refuses.

Chicken. Not as if it would matter if he fell.

No skin off his beak.

SIBLING RIBALDRIES ! Rather Rude Rhymes

heather-and-nicky-b-optomizec-150x150 Nicky and Heather SullivanSibling Ribaldries ! Rather Rude Rhmes our first collection South East London sisters Nicky & Heather Sullivan have been performing as ‘Office Girls Go Crazy’ for many years, amusing the clientele of SE London pubs and clubs with their odd poems, (composed during their lunch hour) terrible singing and smutty jokes. Performances supporting John Cooper Clark and Vic Reeves Big Night out in New Cross led them to the legendary Tunnel Club, where they braved flying beer glasses, chairs and bodies – all encouraged by Malcolm Hardee. Great fun! Still performing their rather rude poems and jokes, the Office Girls are regulars on the London poetry/comedy circuit, and of course, Edinburgh. Now you can read a collection of their poems in ‘Sibling Ribaldries – Rather Rude Rhymes’ – if you dare…FREE DOWN LOAD

Poem from Sibling Ribaldries

TITS UP!

I was feeling a bit down the other day, As my chest had southwards drifted, So I popped into M&S And bought a new bra, Well now I feel quite uplifted! nicky sullivan

Joy, Fear and F–k It is my first collection of poetry

 antbc-optomize-150x150 Ant SmithJoy, Fear and F–k It by Ant Smith The Game Cat has been performing poetry for 20 years and this collection includes the major works from his stage performance canon.

More are available by connecting the author, whilst he yet lives.  It said by Second Chance this is out standing first collection  Joy, fear and F–k It by Ant Smith

Poetry has the power to effect positive cultural change, and so I am proud to present this collection in association with Second Chance.

Although often presented in a comedic framework, these pieces all carry a spine of steel. Read them once to laugh, and twice to cry. It is a dark world in which we live. free down load extract from Joy Fear and Fuck It. 

Poem from Joy, Fear and F–k It

I Will ruin You

I will ruin you

Like champagne ruins rich kids

Like wasps can ruin picnics

Like kisses ruin lipstick

I will ruin you

Like Hollywood ruins novels

Like poets ruin bottles

Like brick walls ruin knuckles

I will ruin you

Ernie Burns

optomize2-WhenLondon-150x150 Ernie BurnsWhen London Finally Gave in and Started to Love 

Finally the fantastic performance poet Ernie Burns has penned his poems in a book,called When London Finally Gave in and Started to Love  so we can carry him around in our pockets! This collection ‘When London Finally Gave In and Started to Love’ is a superb distillation of five years of his writing; full of what Ernie writes best about, the heart! It’s texts are grubby with the sardonic soot of London’s glaucous city smog and an absolute spark of a poem entitled ‘Little Ember’ scatters light upon the cobbled streets.

Poem from When London Finally Gave in and Started to Love By Ernie Burns

Bad Day This is a “worse” day It holds “worse” for me And I fear more “worse” Is bound to appear Because “worse” is a curse That scares my “Okay” Muscles it out and packs it away It is going to be a terrible day

Because “worse” is a bad listener It does not care When I say In a stern admonishing tone “Bad day bad!”…It runs off Making people think I am mad Talking to a day like that And all I will get today is “Worse”So, how I will feel today is bad. free down load extract from the book.
