The tone and caliber of all your verse is just pathetic;
Catharsis other than through art -- a strong emetic
Will serve to cleanse your gut and clear your pores.
I also recommend more time outdoors.
If you, by this prescription, are unswayed,
Then I suggest you go out and get laid.

Placing in festival competitions when you are the only entry or one of three hardly counts. Especially when the other competitor gets disqualified for entering the wrong comp, as happened in one case.

(There's usually about 5 to 10 competitors and 20 to 30 watching; and judges don't have to give any awards out - it's like The Chelsea Flower Show in that way. Plus, I can't remember anyone entering the wrong comp., Guest. Finally, you could at least avoid knocking your own culture to get at me!)

(When a golfer's put catches the edge of the hole and drops in, folks tend to say "It went in the side door"; and when someone has not had their best round, folks tend to say "A - Donald - Bradman of a score", i.e. a big number on the score-card.)

Another example from my life's work - another lay/poem-come-folk-song:
162   TEES TO TYNE: FIRST IMPRESSIONS - SUMMER 2001

Where traditions are not so rare;
    Sea, country and works in the air;
A multitude of monuments,
    Planted tubs and patterned pavements.

The longish pedestrian malls;
    The remnants of defensive walls...

Wheat, rape and pillage in the fields;
    Estuaries guarded by shiny shields;
Long sandy beaches with dead whale scenes;
    Romantic Marmite goes between.

Ice-creams in parts licked by trees,
    Or fringed by boat clubs, gantries or a wharf
And crossed by practical delights -
    I'd reach and type more if I wasn't a dwarf

Wow, this is one of my favourites of yours, Walkaboutsverse! So true. I sympathise *completely*. *Completely*, I say:

From One Lover to Free Lover to Fee Lover,

    For children's sakes, let's fashion back to One Lover:

In public-life there are - guess what - women and men;

    Thus, upbringing's best by a woman and a man -

Not by one or two men, or one or two women,

    And not in a tug-of-war of women and men.
