Bridgid Patrick Poems

1.
.rhyme Is A Crime

Since rhyming and rhythm are terribly boring
They must now be barred from all musical scoring;
Those poets employing these rhythms and rhymes
Should pay with their lives for committing such crimes!

Abortion

Six weeks old today mamma
a birthday gift for me,
a pair of big brown eyes through
one day i will see.

A Woman's Handbag

The handbag is a rare delight, it's like Aladdin's cave,
All sorts of things are hidden there, that females like to save,
It's black and big and heavy, with a nice long shoulder strap,
Its weighted down with odds and sods and other stuff like that.

The Torment

Sorrow swalowed me into the cruel black sea,
The icy cold water washed over me,

The Vampire

I was walking down the river bank it was just the other night
When a vampire with a fishing rod gave me a real bad fright

" Divine Intervention" was not written by her! She has plagiarised this.

In her biography, Ms Patrick claims not to be a poet 'of any substance'. I feel that she is underselling herself: here is a highly intelligent, witty, feisty, and, above all, TALENTED young poet who packs a serious punch into just about everything that she pens. I enjoy nearly every single piece of her writing, my personal favourites including 'Rhyme Is a Crime', 'Little Jimmy Tattersall', 'Hand Job', and 'Do Not Disturb'. As she astutely observes in 'Great Unknown', she is indeed a great if obscure writer. It is my wish, however, that her works receive the wider audience that they fully deserve, and sooner rather than later. Bridg, allow me to offer you my full admiration and respect for your zesty, entertaining writing. Very best regards, Gina.

'and every so often I put a pen to paper and voila! ' Many poets of lesser abilty could do with your humility!
