A Yorkshire View of Celebrity

Overheard in the barber’s


Talking about a local man, whose son has become a nationally popular and celebrated poet, much seen and heard on national television and radio

Man in chair: His son’s done all right for ‘imself.

Barber: Aye.


Man in chair: He could be Poet Laureate one day.

Barber: He were asked. But he didn’t want it, so he started writing musicals.

Silence. The scissors click

I am blind, and I hate it. It stinks. But life is still sweet. I have multiple sclerosis, and that stinks too, but life is still sweet. These are my musings.
