Brand New (but soon to be recycled) Blog

Martin Kiszko on 08/7/2013

Welcome greenies, non greenies and inbetweenies! Welcome those that have recycled your Lamborghinis, those of you fans of organic beanies, those of you hippies with holes in your jeanies, all of you classic chilled fans of Rossini, those of you giving up lattes and panini to fit into your boxers and your bikinis, those that want three green wishes from the green genie. You know what I meanie!

A big green welcome then to my brand new (but soon to be recycled) Blog! It’s here that I’ll be chirping and chatting, blagging and blogging, gabbing and gossing about all things green – well ,not ALL things green – snot, mould and green gunge might not always get a mention. It depends whether I feel creative enough to write them into a poem.

It’s here where I’ll answer a lot of the fantastic questions I’m asked when I perform my Green Poems show – such as: What was the first poem you ever wrote? How many poems have you written?
What’s your favourite poem? What’s your favourite football team?

I’ll also be taking a look at the amazing poems you’ve sent me and I’ll show you how to write some really cool poems to impress your friends, parents, teachers and anyone who currently has a top 40 chart hit! There’ll be no stopping us! And whether you’re just starting out in school, are in the middle of it, or you left it years ago – Green Poems for a Blue Planet will restore all your green bits and show you exciting ways of being poetic and being green. You’ll soon be sprouting words faster than a sprouting sprout! Now try repeating that last sentence quickly.

Finally, I’ll end in the same way the walkie-talkie operator did…

What did the greener than green radio operator say over his walkie-talkie?
‘Over and sprout.’

    Hi there!
    I loved watching your show at Felbrigg Green Build on Saturday! I’m really big on all this global warming stuff. It really annoys my family when I go round turning all the lights and computers off when it turns out someone’s still using them! Maybe I should take some advice from your poem, Over Green. I think that one’s my favouirite so far. Anyway, I really love your poems, and I’m recommending them to all my friends, who are very tolerant to all of my Save-The-World plans, (My most recent of which being to start up a company of VW Campervans that run off solar power and tour India in one). Maybe I should stick to the light switches, but it’s always good to have a dream, right? Anyway, keep writing, I found your talk really inspiring! Alannah :)
