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

Not Swift enough


The judge has made his decision in the Swift Satire Competition and I’m afraid your entry is not among the prizewinners.
Congratulations again on being shortlisted and thanks for your interest in the competition.
The winners will be announced at the Swift Festival launch on Thursday 1 July and put on the website soon afterwards.
The winning entry will also be put on the website.

Oh well. La-di-da. Can't win 'em all. Probably pastiching Bob Dylan was not Swiftian enough!!
Meanwhile the Swift festival in Trim looks enormous fun. It begins on Thursday and has lots of dead intersting events. For something a bit out of the ordinary!


  1. Pastiching Bob Dylan sounds Swiftian enough to me!

  2. Hard luck Pete, show us the poem, bet we'd think it a winner! Congrats again on being shortlisted, no mean feat!

  3. Yep, shortlisting is an acchievement, though sometimes it feels worse when you don't win. Show us the poem!

  4. Peter, this photo reminded me of the progressive painted street warnings I saw in County Mayo, but I can't quite remember exactly how they were phrased. Something like: "Slow" "Slow down" "Don't even think about it..." or something like that. Do you know what that final phrase is? I just remember laughing when I read it.
