This is mainly for me and The Norks but if anyone wants to know...

It's about a local Reading poet called AF Harold, who's obviously been... "inspired" by John Hegley.

The Jeroboam

ok here's my AF Harold poem
maybe I'll win a jeroboam
if it's any good that is
'though could it be much worse than his?


Fruit Loops

I like lentil soup,
And I like fruit loops,
I don't know why,
But that's because,
as Nietzche said,
It is hard enough to remember my opinions, without also remembering my reasons for them!

ok

mine is:

I wish I had a yak
like A F Harrold
whose suit is black
oh yak,
why won't you come back?

i've seen a f harold twice, i thought he was dreadful. one of those times, gratifyingly, he was heavily booed off stage at the beer festival

:lol:

Shame I missed that.

I think his greatest moment was 'performing' his Edinburgh Fringe reviews instead of doing a poem.

Surely you mean:

I've seen A F Harold twice,
I thought he wasn't too nice,
One of those times,
His gratuitous rhymes,
Were, gratifyingly, heavily booed off stage (at the beer festival).

The Cheeseboard

Cheddar is the cheesy duke
I came upon it quite by fluke
Whilst reading an unrelated book
But now often use it when I cook

Stilton however, gives me headaches
It's stench - not unlike that of dead hakes -
Makes me want to be hit with rakes
Until unconsciousness my mind overtakes

Roquefort is the king of cheeses
The smell of it, my scent sense pleases
If it did not carry infectious diseases
Truly then it would be the bees knees

an artistic hero?
or an autistic zero?

a yak?

a rack?

his pronouncements strenuous
and rhyming couplets tenuous

Sometimes he says words...

like yoghurt

and booklet

and pauses



























for effect.











And you never quite know,
when it's over....













but it is













or is it?











ham
















jam













cheese flan.






spam.

How I wish I'd seen that. Was his syphilitic Shelley imitating poet friend there? I loves a double sighting.

I did like his performance of his reviews- probably the single most egotistical feat ever achieved by a ginger.

This guy is a loon.

However my cousin did write an anti-vegetarian rap, unknowingly in a similar style.

They hunt down the weak till the battle is done.

For thill.
