The Bland & the Blind
Honour their Greatness
How are you? Happy 2021!
Let's hope for a better year for all!
As I begin another year watching original voices not find an audience while the bland and the copycats continue to find publication and success, I present to you a poem I wrote a few years ago. (can apply to other fields too).

‘Find what is lost’
‘Look to your local’
Of the lives amongst the trees
The stories lived beneath your feet
And remove your ears and eyes
From within your corpulent cheeks of arse'.
Dedicated to those who celebrate the 'tried and proven'
without investigating/exploring the alternate or now, for themselves.
