Poetic thoughts about Parkinson`s, Pandemic & Life
This book is a little treasure which will delight, amuse and entertain most readers. From a man who hated poetry at school and into adulthood, Mark, a man who is living with Parkinson’s Disease (some days better than others) and woke up one morning with words flying round his head . . . . so it began.
The poems are an attempt to put Parkinson`s in its place but also take a cynical look at observations of life during the Pandemic. They are wonderfully illustrated by Mr Tom C. Murray OBE whose sense of humour shines through his drawings and complements Mark’s verse.
‘“I grinned all the way through this terrific collection.”
