    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!

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.

But the lady finds just what she wants deep down amongst her treasure,
Of keys and pins and leg hair wax and a metric rule for measure,
The remnants of forgotten ills with aspirins held so dear,
Birth control and other pills with labels quite unclear.

Calorie counters, cotton buds, old lottery tickets too, ...

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
'I haven't had a bite all day' it said and bared its drooling fangs
'A pint or two of your cool blood will cure my hunger pangs'
It chased me down the cemetary as silent as the grave
Where spooks and ghouls& zombies were i said 'bridgid man! be brave'
The vampire leapt upon me, we tumbled and we fell
Headlong down a deep dark hole, which led right down to hell
In hel
