    Dear McGough,
    I am a phD student writing about your poems, Liverpool poets, I feel neon lights come to me when I read nearly all your poems, but what amuses me more is the poem entitled strangeways: where Granny's canary revolt till gran carries out major reforms. Even canaries can not stand the beautiful cage. Thank you so much. Shatha Alsaadi

not a famous-last-words
peaceful out of breath death

When I'm 73
and in constant good tumour
may I be mown down at dawn

on my way home
from an allnight party

Or when I'm 91
with silver hair
and sitting in a barber's chair
may rival gangsters
with hamfisted tommyguns burst in
and give me a short back and insides

Or when I'm 104
and banned from the Cavern
may my mistress
catching me in bed with her daughter
and ...

The Leader

I wanna be the leader
I wanna be the leader
Can I be the leader?
Can I? I can?
Promise? Promise?
Yippee I'm the leader
I'm the leader

OK what shall we do?
