Spike Milligan being serious? You are not serious!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hidden Words: Collected Poems (Paperback)
I knew Spike Milligan could make me laugh - I didn't know he could also make me cry.
This collection of poems will take you right through the whole gamut of emotion from amusement to heart-rending anguish.
Spike is a poet who will make you think, make you see things in a way you never considered, and never thought possible - and if you have a heart, he will break it for you. 'Growing Up II' has to be one of the saddest poems ever written.
If I had any influence at all, I'd make sure Spike's poetry was taught in every school in the land.
