    Hi Michael,
    I am trying to contact you to obtain permission to display one of your poems Chocolate Cake in an art show that is called Visual Poetry in Tampa Florida. I do not find a way to contact you directly, and the website people were no help. I trust that you do not mind, and credits will be given to you and to the website where I found your marvelous poem. Contact me at gainor@tampabay.rr.com and I'll give you more information. Thanks so much!

    Hello folks
    Just to point out that I am not the Michael Rosen of 'Shaynew Press' who is a 'radical sex photographer', nor am I the Michael Rosen of Lincoln College Oxford who is a Marxist philosopher. It might be fun to be both, as well as me, but one life's enough, eh?
    luv
    Michael Rosen (er...English poet, not the US children's poet called Michael J.Rosen...I kid you not!)

Chocolate Cake

I love chocolate cake.
And when I was a boy
I loved it even more.

Sometimes we used to have it for tea
and Mum used to say,
'If there's any left over
you can have it to take to school
tomorrow to have at playtime.'
