Every week I do a little poem and I share it on the radio. A little witty ditty inspired by something that has caught my eye or captured my imagination during the week. This podcast is a collection of those poems; an audiological anthology born out of my favourite part of my weekly radio show.
This week's witty ditty immortalises some of the mad and bizarre things the history books might forget when documenting the story of our battle with Coronavirus. Very much guided by the science; this is Britain's 2020, unabridged and described by yours truly.
This week's poem is based on a true story and one formerly featured in The Darwin Awards. It tells the horrifying yet hilarious tale of a farmer's wife who came to an abrupt end at the mercy of her own animals on a farm in Durham.
In the first of a new reincarnation of this podcast we kick off The Poetry Podcast, an audiological anthology of my poems featuring a weekly "witty ditty". This week I've penned a poem inspired by the true story of a man who waged war on a fly with devastating consequences.
