POETRY RECOMMENDED

In a first for this site, you are urged to buy a book of poetry. It’s by Hal G.P. Colebatch, so it’s actually good.

UPDATE. In another historic first, Chris Sheil – notorious for his ability to destroy all who he supports – backs some winners. This could change everything.

    1. “the romantic love-story ‘Redhead with Phosphorus’”

      Glad to see somebody sticking up for the gingers!

    1. #1 paco: You are so damned quick.

      Anything and everything written by this guy is worth reading.

    1. Can’t fault Shiel’s rugby analysis.  Everyone hits a winner every once in a while.  Including the Wallabies…

    1. Thans for posting this. I’ve read some of his poetry in Quadrant and it’s v. good!

    1. #4: I believe it has something to do with champagne bottles and excessive effervescence. At least, that’s how I got my cork injury.

    1. and paco, I’m pretty sure a well-aimed champagne cork could give one a cork 😉

    1. Only 8 comments. Doesn’t look good for the poets.

  1. Had “cork injury” myself, some years back…never thought to write a poem about it, though…I can’t write poetry, but may have to purchase something other than Robert Service now!
