I am an International Man of Mystery - born in Trinidad, raised in New Zealand, and living in Australia. My earliest influences lyrically were those of the Calypsonians of the 1960s, the greatest being old Birdie himself the Mighty Sparrow as well as the joyful songs of The Merrymen. Later in my teens I was struck by the power of words and language from the mercurial pen of Bob Dylan. The first poem I ever wrote was in 1975 at the age of 14 for a class assignment. I copied the lyrics from the Pink Floyd song "Money" and got a great mark from my teacher, Mrs Laird. She congratulated me on my effort and creativity (something I possessed very little of in school) and so I eventually came clean and had to re-write it. She did commend me on my honesty and choice of lyric though and did what good teachers do...engage and encourage. It could have been worse - I nearly chose a Frank Zappa song that would have been highly inappropriate! My poetry is very much like me - a work in progress! I often revisit and revise my catalogue as I grow as a writer and am grateful for any constructive advice. The real writer and talent in my family is my wife who is more an author than a poet, but she is far too sensible to bare her soul to the world. I, however, am not! I love my golf, my cricket and my Rugby League (that's a similar sport to Rugby for all my non-European/Australasian readers) and support Russell Crowe's team, the mighty South Sydney Rabbitohs and the North Queensland Cowboys in the Australian NRL (National Rugby League). Go the Bunnies and go the Cowboys!

                  WARNING: THIS IS NOT FAKE NEWS!

 

I might have to keep a very low profile in the coming weeks people! The paparazzi are camped outside my home and the news choppers are circling above. I guess now you know why I haven't been posting so much lately. I will try to answer any questions you may have.

 

Thank you at this very stressful time!

How could she resist the whole Jean Luc Picard/Bruce Springsteen/Carl Barron mash-up persona? So, what song will she write when you two break up? Soupers should guess the song title. "His Sheila Needs Tequila" "Taylor Made" Umm? Too funny. You make Soup a good place, keith. Keep playing! Hugs!

This time I've really done it, Cyndi. I was seduced by her youth and glamour; she was seduced by my...by my...wait a second, I'm trying to think...by my...nope, got nothing! Could have been worse I suppose - it could have been Lady Gaga!

Hi there darlin', we've missed you. I'll let her have her fun with me but I know it could never work. One of us is a cool sexy svelte diva and the other is a tall blonde Grammy award winning recording artist! Hugs!

Now I know how Julian Assange feels - I'm a prisoner in my own home. I've not sure which one of you alerted the media but this story is already bigger than Ben Hur! Just saw a reporter from TMZ interviewing my neighbours. I'm not coping - any suggestions?

Gotta say I'm impressed with your knowledge of Tay's songbook, Cyndi. Are you a fan? You strike me more as a Joni Mitchell gal..."it's clouds illusions I recall..."

Tell you don't want no "bad blood" between you, but you've just gotta "Shake it Off." And if she wants you back it will be in her "Wildest Dreams."
