Biography of Johnny Headspeck

Johnny Headspeck is the pen name and alter-ego of The Pennine Poet John Thomas. I use Johnny Headspeck when I move away from my more traditional sonnets and romanticisms, and when I employ a more base writing style. Johnny Headspeck is based on John Headspeck who was a direct line ancestor of mine and who lived in Flamborough, East Yorkshire around the years 1690 to 1740, and who was once convicted of stealing two gentlemans waistcoats. Where his body lies I do not know, but as Johnny Headspeck his name carries on. Updates

Kids! Always on MSN,
Or ‘Face Book’
Or ‘My Space’
They call it ‘Social networking’,
Told me they posted a letter today
At school
“That’s great”,

“What were you studying? ”
“History! ”
