A Hundred Verses

by Alan Fenton

Dear reader,

Some verses on this page are intended to be funny, (I hope you will find them so!), some are satirical, some sad, some nostalgic, some borderline religious, some the opposite. But whatever they are, or try to be, they have all been written with one purpose in mind – to entertain. And I believe we all need entertaining, especially in these difficult times.

I offer them to you in all humility, hoping you may enjoy them. One new verse will appear approximately every week for the foreseeable future.
