Here are 2 poems I just found on my H drive. I wrote these at a John Hegley gig at his instigation. He was unimpressed: the first received the one-word review "Bitter". The other he ignored entirely. From this modest start an industry is born.

JS BACH never visited Luton
Neither, coincidentally, did FRANZ SCHUBERT
I think that's reflected
In their music.

From Round Green to High Town
Is a Bit of a Walk.
One of the many people who never attempted it
was George Frederick Handel.

Are you not familiar with "Death and the Maiden"?

You are correct about JS Bach, he never got further than Watford, although CPE Back was a big fan of Luton Town FC and dedicated a Cello Concerto to Sid Owen.
