Pie Shop Police

Pie Shop Police

Guardians of the pie shop; northern upper crust.
The bouncers for the butty on your break.
Custodians of the brownie
For Wigan’s finest townie;
Purveyors of the parkin, pie and cake.

The minders of the muffins; the gurus of the gateau -
High chieftans of the chocolate-dipped flapjack.
Primed if it turns nasty
Over sausage roll or pasty -
Wait Ann behind the counter and Linda out the back.

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!!
