Profile I’ve just realised my profile was 12 years old – so here’s an update (I’ve even added a photo!) I’m not a poet – I merely write comical verse. I’m afraid that I don’t understand real poetry and am reluctant to comment on others’ work as a result. My preference is for humorous verse and I admire the work of Philip Larkin, Roger McGough, and Wendy Cope. My favourite poet however (and the only one I regularly re-read) is John Betjeman
