KINETIC POEM No 2:

By Roger McGough.

with love

give me your hand

some stranger

is fiction than truth

without love

I`m justa has

                                                    been away

                                                    too long in the tooth.

3rd of October is National Poetry Day in the U.K. Roger McGough is one of the nation`s most popular poets. His work is spare, precise, deliciously entertaining and invigorating: every word serves a purpose and is not there to decorate with unnecessary verbiage in order to show off to the world how clever he is. Sometimes poets need a bit of elbow room to fully express themselves; but Roger McGough shows that just as a picture paints a thousand words, so can a poet get to the point without losing the soul from their words. He is the Master of Minimalism.
