Back Cover Blurb
A mother mopes; a medal melts away.
A hopeful lover buys a parakeet.
A mother hears that mischief is afloat.
A pair of brogues (maroon) is planned and made.
A legislative vixen baits her prey.
A young man speeds downhill; a father growls.
A cemetery affords a pleasing walk.
Worn cattle churn the burning earth to clay.
Fair means or foul to net a suitable boy.
A cheated marksman looks for further sport.
Crushed corpses rot upon the holy sands.
And even bridge stokes tumult at the Club.
A cobbler writes. A poet mails his book.
Sad sons assuage the spirits of their dead.
Igniting madness through the city’s maze.
And at a cricket match three suitors meet.
While private shame is viewed by public eyes.
Some win, some draw, and — as must be — some lose.
And wander off the stage — at least for now.
Weidenfeld & Nicolson; 1st edition (7th November 2013)
