The Adventures of George
My witty, humorous and satirical narrative poem The Adventures of George has about 39,000 words.
Although born in Oxford, England, I have lived for most of my life in Bangkok, Thailand. I'm a writer and the author of that rollicking, wacky and zany tale, The Adventures of George, a humorous and satirical look at national leaders, politicians and celebrities in the form of a narrative poem. In the story, the reader will meet fascinating characters such as The Maximum Leader, Mustafa bin Maden, Didi Damin, Borrock Sobama, Stavros Onassos and many more. Here are a few lines -
“Yes,” said the cook, “Mother Russia is big,
please allow me to salute her with a small swig
of a brew which has become my favourite tipple,
brandy distilled from the best Georgian apples.”
Saying this he pulled his flask from his smock,
poured out a measure and held it aloft,
“First in space, and victor in wars,”
and downed his drink to much applause.
