This hasn’t been widely reported but I was going to be the poet at Joe Biden‘s inauguration. He wanted me to do my poems ‘Ham’, ‘Jam’ & ‘Spam’ as he saw them as a symbol of hope, showing that despite America currently being divided all Americans have the potential to come together as sandwich fillers. However due to Covid19 I wasn’t able to travel, so they gave the gig to some young poet (I’m not sure what happened to her). Should the pandemic be resolved in 2025 I’m sure I’ll get an invite from President Ivanka.
Should you have 26 mins spare check out my comedy podcast. Cheers.
The other week I managed to lose my bag with an unusually high percentage of my writing in it.
Find out more from 16mins 30. I’m trying to be positive and see it as an opportunity to do other things. However I may just be masking the pain of overseeing another chapter of failure. Of course if it were an actual chapter it would no doubt have been in the bag.
Tues 12th June is starting to look like a historic day. Not only is Donald Trump set to meet Kim Jong-un but I am reading a few new poems at a night of spoken word in Crystal Palace. It’s not for me to say which is the bigger event but if any talent spotters or members of the public are out and about in the area come to
The Ungoverned Tongue, at Numidie Bar 48 Westow Hill, SE19 1RX.
8:30pm Free Entry.

Thanks (just press play)
