I am an experienced writer who has worked across a variety of mediums including: screenplay, script editing, prose, poetry,and novelization. I am particularly interested in psychogeography and the scope it gives both academics and creative writers to effectively trade elements of their fields.

Plastic Paddies and Silicone Scots

You know the type;

Too much tartan and sabre rattling patter,

Flag-waving Olympics of victimhood,

Too much stout cried into,

Not enough solidarity with the brothers and sisters of another race,

Rivers of green,

Misty-eyed Brigadoon images of a past,

A past that was created for commerce.

The folk songs that remain unsung,

The ones that never get an airing,

Are often the vessels of truth,

In a post-truth world.

We have much to protest about,

More than ever as the disunited kingdom,

Drifts further away from its European cousins,

And into a morass of anomie.

I'll still raise a glass of Guinness,

Though for very different reasons;

Here's to cultural amnesia, folks.
