Comments about Douglas Scotney

  • Michael Walker (2/27/2018 8:50:00 PM)

    A prolific poet who is transforming himself in ideas and forms. Not one for the long poem, he keeps to
    shorter poems that make the reader really think about the meaning. Has a deep knowledge of cricket and writes very good poems about the sport, but not too many. In fact, Doug has a wide and comprehensive number of topics to write about.

B: Xxxxxxv: Out Of Mockery

Out of their mockers
they made gauche players
and charged their own mockery
and their mockers'.

Read the full of B: Xxxxxxv: Out Of Mockery

Stretch Or Gasbag

The name of the woman at the head of the queue
sounded like Dean, but she spelled it Dehne.

I said it's German and should be said like Deigner.

'I know, ' she said, 'but in Australia what can you do? '

'It sounds like a verb, ' said I.
'Have you any idea what it means? '
