John Carter Brown


Biography of John Carter Brown

John Carter Brown poet

Lancashire lad, born and bred. Twice married, and with 5 children. Educated at Secondary Modern, but left in 1965 with no academic qualifications-(they were not mandatory back then) Moved to Somerset in 1990, then took a GCSE in English in 1994 (out of curiosity) and passed with a Grade B. This then spurred me on to have a go at writing poetry, which I have been doing, sporadically ever since. I moved back to Wigan in 2000.

My main hobbies are: Listening to music (I also play guitar, and have written a few songs): Gardening; Reading; Walking, and Photography.

Uncomplicated poetry from an uncomplicated man. I hope you enjoy my work.

John Carter Brown's Works:

I have one poem titled, 'My adopted home' in an anthology called: 'Poets in the South West'. Published by Arrival Press in 1996.

The Old Box

Whatever is on the old box
It don't matter,
Some people just sit there
Their eyes getting fatter;
Their brains being dulled
By the flickering screen,
By the adverts that urge them
To buy what they've seen;
They worship their telly
