You might wonder why the strapline to this blog is
“ Where poetry and Lego collide” or something such.
Well……I’ve got a bit of an apology to make. It was all going to be much more serious. The strapline was going to be”
“Where poetry and ego collide”
I was going to write this incredibly complex and exciting analysis of the way in which the ego ( and indeed the super ego) relates to the writing of poetry. Damn it ! I’ve got a whole shelf of Feud’s books on the subject. Who was Feud ? Johann Sigmund Feud, who was the first man to explain the symbolic significance of cigars.
Nothing to do with Freud. And certainly not a typo.
Glad we’ve got that cleared up.
Why is the blog called “ The Top Banana” ?
Easy. My grandad was a gangster in Chicago in the twenties.
