The first book of a seven book series - Alternative Poetry Books - Yellow edition contains 62 poems. Funny/quirky light-hearted poems begin on odd numbered pages alternating with serious poems which begin on even numbered pages.
More humorous pieces Include such characters as a belligerent poet determined to fight off any 'flowery' readings of their work; a schoolboy with Asperger's who has his own reasons for never biting his teacher again and a family of gnomes who will accept any indignity rather than make a pot of tea out of turn.
The serious poems include some alternative views of personal loss, politics and some of the bleaker aspects of modern life.
Life is made up of dark and light moments and this book is intended to reflect life and the humour life is always capable of serving up, even when at its darkest.
These poems are written for adult readers and may not be suitable for readers under 14 years old.
