Dark Arts

Dark Arts

Only some are chosen
And few accept the mission
Of cradling and passing on
The dark arts of long division.

They borrow here and pay back there,
These children of Set 1,
While we run out of fingers
To meekly count upon.

Up and down the kingdom,
From town to ocean wide,
We wallow in defeat
As they conquer and divide.

Re: 'Starting Over'

One of my childhood bezzies, who knew my Dad as well as anyone when we were kids, writes some brilliant poetry so I asked him if he could put something together with him in mind. Knowing my Dad was both a John Lennon fan and a great cook he came up with this. It blew me away. Thank you so much Stephen Williams

I needed something just a little out of the ordinary as a special memory and testament to a friend. Steve at Jiggery Poetry quickly got to work and created a bespoke piece which offered a humorous yet respectful and fitting piece of poetry which hit the spot. I can't recommend him enough....

Thanks Steve for a brilliant poetry slam day at our school. The kids were entertained from start to finish with your energy and ability to get them writing and performing their work! The poems you wrote for us are very funny - the 'librarian' one has pride of place in our office!!
