It’s official: one year since lockdown… doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?
Alright, so it’s been a bit rubbish but amidst all the things we’d rather forget there have been some unbelievable moments and ridiculous events that I thoroughly enjoyed ripping to shreds in poetic verse every week on my radio show.
Alas, driven by the data and guided by the science, I’ve compiled a world-beating, mass gathering of these witty ditties I’ve called Pandemic Poetry: The Covid Collection. My first ever ebook, my debut as an author and published poet and my little contribution to the great verse of life.
This collection of silly little poems began as a way of making light of whatever dark we woke up in on any given week but as all the events of the past year unfolded, and I continued to weave them all into funny little rhymes, they’ve become a genuine piece of history. Reflections on the craziness of our times within a few witty words, immortalised forever.
If you’ve been a regular listener of my Friday afternoon radio show on Phoenix FM or if you subscribe to my poetry podcast then you’ll hear some of them performed in all their glory. However, the book also contains some originals you’ll never hear on the radio or on the podcast!
To celebrate the launch of my first ebook and commemorate/commiserate our one year lockdown anniversary my #One2ThreeShow on Phoenix FM last week featured a few of my favourite pandemic poems amidst an isolation playlist.
To listen to the show which includes my rendition of “A Whitty Ditty”, “He Said” and “Oh How I Long To Be In A Conga” read from Pandemic Poetry: The Covid Collection click here.
The ebook features illustrations by my illustratively ingenious sister, Maddie and is available to download on the Amazon Kindle Store. It is dedicated to everyone who stayed at home to protect the lives of others, the key workers who kept the wheels turning, the healthcare professionals, scientists and everybody else who deserves far more than a round of applause on a Tuesday evening.
It certainly is not dedicated to Dominic Cummings.
