Huddled in a drafty doorway,
warm against his master’s side,
the beggar’s dog has no regrets
for the day which has just ended,
or fears for the night to come
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.
