So. Things have changed. I earned a few quid. And I wrote a poem. See, things have changed. Before I would have said, "I wrote a poem", and maybe "lend us a few quid", or just "I wrote a poem". So, my values got all messed up along the way; I mean wasn't this supposed to be a critique on arts funding? No? What? Anyway the truth of it is that I pitched here before to raise money for a poem. I got money. You got poem. Simple. Well, not really. I bought a re-fill for my pen and a notebook (see video) which was great, really great and I got all fired up on coffee in Milan which was fabulous and I wrote a poem. So? So it was a bit about my dad (see video again). So I went home to see him. So the truth is that this left us both a bit confused. So poetry does that. So I needed to throw some more light on the subject. That's what poetry is. Throwing light. I'm asking a fiver. Throw it in. A Lady Godiva. A Jack's alive. Lighten your load and mine. So?
