Profile Iíve just realised my profile was 12 years old Ė so hereís an update (Iíve even added a photo!) Iím not a poet Ė I merely write comical verse. Iím afraid that I donít understand real poetry and am reluctant to comment on othersí work as a result. My preference is for humorous verse and I admire the work of Philip Larkin, Roger McGough, and Wendy Cope. My favourite poet however (and the only one I regularly re-read) is John Betjeman

Two Landlords by Mickey Word Count: 167

I was inspired to write this piece after reading Joanieís poem on the memorials on park benches (which has since disappeared, so I canít comment on it). Jacob Grist (1827-1895) and Joshua Jones (1833-1892) were landlords of inns at either end of the dead straight road (no pun intended) that forms the principal route through my home town of Haywards Heath.
