To Roger McGough

Time flies
We're led to believe
But its us that fly
Time sits on its hands
As we rush by. 

-Roger McGough

"His poetry is like a supermodel who can complete a Sudoku puzzle moments before swishing down the catwalk - easy on the eye and smart as a whip." -Lorne Jackson, Birmingham Daily Post.

As contemporary Lorne's quote is in describing Roger McGough's work, Lorne does aptly deliver a point. Regardless, anyone who could capture such immense profoundness and timelessness within five lines is no doubt a poetic genius. 

This generation is being suffocated with mechanical and technological indulgences and being starved of readers and human expressions. It is words like these which preserve the humanity within the ages. 

I thank my best friend for introducing me to his work. Here's to Roger McGough.
