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.
