I liked the guy

I really did

he was one of those early achievers

got to get to the top quick & young

wherever the top is that is

I liked the way he slung his lines

had some neat word tricks

& then

he got stuck had peaked early

putting out much the same stuff

over & over in time for the Christmas market

anniversary of his first book

stuff the punters readers like

I can hear the agent say

& now he appears on quiz shows

trotting out a funny line

being quite the poet chap

he’s warm witty friendly & kind

but I look for his latest works

& it was there on the easy tv

he spent his better times
