this is stupid-im not buying or pledging anything all I can is someone writing this type of thing,leprehchauns etc.-it,quite simply, lets our great nation down a 'bagful;and -quite frankly-makes me sad.My own book of poem 'Reflections On The Old Wooden Gate' is available on pre-order from www.Conky books.ie.there will be a free pioneer badge include with every copy.thanks,fans!

Ah,Piss-The-Beds
how.i remember you
regal, but scorned
in shadow
by the side of Funky Buddly's ash-pit
fear not!
in my memory
you tower
an apotheosis of wee-wee
I sigh and am gone.

Sounds as though you've ditched Bertrand and Kant, Pat. Sure there's no logic to life. Those lads would only shackle creativity...cf any leaving cert student re calculus.
We're certainly ready to rock Gertie- chomping at the bit with 'unboundless' energy. A creamy pint of mother's milk and a hard copy of 'Poguemahone' in hand.... aaahh... bliss.
Your CV makes for interesting reading. I'm afraid the Toon needs more than 5 tercets and a quatrain at the moment Pat!
Was Robbe-Grillet the author of the Gommes? There were plenty of gommes in my school...most of them teachers. I'd say Seán O Lunky was a gomme. Although the encounter with the blackboard didn't do you a pick of harm , now did it Pat? Or did it?
The dent-de-lion verse evokes pleasant memories of nature walks with an army of 6th class pupils, filling the empty vessels with the French derivation while lighting up a Major...is hindsight embarrassing or wha?
Do keep in touch with your 'clamming' loyal readership... T
