Title: "Homage" to Clive James?
Post by Kevin Cryan on Today at 11:55
This 2004 poem by South Australian poet Rob Walker (http://users.bigpond.com/robwalker1/bio.htm), boldly described by the poet (http://www.robwalkerpoet.com/?p=14) as “a ‘homage‘ to Clive James at Writers’ Week”, may amuse some of you.

                Even As I Speak

                 The Book, from My Publisher, is now Available
                 And I am Chuffed.
                 I am here to launch Your book by the trailerful
                 But first note the Pristine White Marquee, yonder, stuffed
                 With my own Literary Masterpiece
                 Which You will recognize anon since thereupon
                 Emblazoned is my name in 96 Font
                 And within its covers
                 Works which span my career as the Ponte
                 Vecchio spans the Arno Or like Meccano
                 The Mathematical Bridge across the Cam
                 Whence in My Cambridge Years I swam
                 Or took the Punt
                 Being as I am
                 A Lazy count-
                 ryman of Yours.

                 The Book, from My Publisher, is now Available
                 And I am Stoked..... [link] (http://www.friendlystreetpoets.org.au/fp13.htm)
