I'm now a published poet....lol!

Yes it's true.

I've written my first book of poetry and it was published today.

Never been so scared in my bloody life.

All profits from the sale of the book will be sent to Cancer Research UK so if you want to get your hands on a copy please go to:

I thank you!!!!

Are any of your poems as good as this one?
Keith, a burgeoning poet in London,
Borded the Undergound with trouser zipper undone.
The subway's doors closed,
upon his Percy exposed,
And now he and Pam have no more intimate fun.

Nice job, KW! I'll buy one to help you out. Even if I'm not a fan of poetry.

He's a poet, and he knows it...

His feet show it...

They're Longfellows



Congratulations Keithie.

Will you be doing book signings at Rosfest?

Wow, that's awesome KW. I used to write a lot of poetry(if you can call it that). Some of it I was very proud of but much of it was garbage. Anyway, you inspire me to maybe give it another go. Congratulations. Maybe you will become poet laureate of the UK. Hey, you never know.

From a gig on a train he was riding
It got late and he woke on a siding
He called his wife Pam
Who asked who pdj am
And from her wrath, now I am hiding
