The Plight of the Polite

And midway through our lives
we found ourselves in a desolate wasteland,
our clothes ragged,
our tongues parched,
a small crowd of us at our hope’s end
and guided by guards
with malice in their hearts.

“This is nice,” we said.

A Little News of Miserable Malcolm
Miserable Malcolm will be headlining the “Poetry Blast” at Kempley Village Hall in Gloucestershire this Friday (20th April), providing a damp squib after the stellar line-up of Brenda Read-Brown, Chloe Jacquet, Samantha Pearse, Peter Wyton and Melanie Branton. It starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £10. More details here.

Then on Tuesday 24th April, Malcolm will be running a workshop at Cheltenham Poetry Festival called “Write More Depressing Poetry with Miserable Malcolm”. Incredibly (and a sad sign of the times we live in) this workshop has been over-subscribed and so has been moved onto the main stage of the Cheltenham Playhouse. So there are now more tickets available. It starts at 2pm and there are more details here.

Lastly, on Saturday 28th of April, Malcolm will be showing his sorry face once again at Mr Fluffypunk’sPennygaff at the SVA, John Street, Stroud, alongside Uta Baldauf, Liz Bentley and Project Adorno. Tickets are £10 for an unmissable night (if you can manage to miss Malcolm’s bit, that is).
