"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Lighten up Online online

For those of you who like their poetry a little less serious, the June edition of Martin Parker's quarterly Lighten-up Online is now out
Martin was a finalist for the Strokestown humorous poetry prize both last year and this and has a soft humour that is utterly bewitching. One of his poems, written in the style of Longfellow but from Hiawatha's mother's point of view, has me smiling every time I think of it (Minihaha - "bloody woman from Dakota")
