__ This is a book that I have dipped into over the last few months. We purchased this after hearing Martin talk at the wigtwon book festival on 24/11/2011. The poems he has written are very sharp and witty. A very topical example is the one listed on the back cover -
I have no prejudice or rancour,
Against the profiteering banker;
But if he reckons that the onus,
Should fall on us to pay his bonus,
Then I'm the Maharajah of Sri Lanka.
I hope Martin does not mind me quoting it here but it is so apt with the all that is going on with city bonuses at the present. This was a very enjoyable book and one I will keep dipping into again and again. Hopefully there will be a follow up with more new poems later on this year. So for week 24 this is written book 21 audio book 8 – total 29.
