Hi Sam the man, I'd love to know where you heard that about Spike and what book it apparently appeared in. His daughter has told me there is no reference to it in his books. As pauline says (thanks) I wrote this poem back in 1991.
He told us he was ill! .
Spike the funniest man that ever lived! ! !
The poem smiling is infectious was written by an unknown author years before the claims of some, Spike Milligan liked it so much he put it in one of his books.
The poem you are referring to is called The Smile and is by Jez Alborough and appears in his book 'Shake Before Opening' 1991
I like poems but my favourite one is the ning nang nong it is a tongue twister
Spike Milligan can my pee pee!
My partner says she composed this poem about 1982/83 and sent it with other poems to a publishing house in Preston after seeing an advert in Liverpool Echo. They sent them back saying send a postal order for a sum of money which my partner could not afford at the time. She the other poems except the one that is being attributed to other authors. Can anyone advise how she pursue this further
Very mysterious about the author of Smile. I've had it as a document on my computer since 1994, so it was definitely written before then. Whoever was the author, it's a great poem.
I am the author, have a look: // .facebook.com/TheSmilePoem
I have seen the smiling poem, I shall hunt for the link for you, does any one remember a song about " you need to keep your socks on to stop your feet from fraying at the end" Cheers
The poem A Smile wasn't written by Spike Milligan. It was written by a children's poet call Jez Alborough and published in a collection in 1991

This poem was not written by this poet. I know because I wrote it in 2004. I don't see it in his poetry list. I call it " Infectious Smiles" . (Posted by " Good Thinking" on May 3rd,2019, under Spike Milligan's name.)
If you wro
Hi Susan, if you wrote it in 2004, how come I published it in my anthology in 1991? // .facebook.com/TheSmilePoem
my nan is dead pls help
Where is the poem India India
My favourite Spike poem was:
There was a young man from Darjeeling
Who got on a bus bound for Ealing
A sign on the door
Said 'Don't spit on the floor'
So he layid back and spat on the ceiling.
It appears in one of his books (not certain if he wrote it)
I suspect that the so-called Spike Milligan poem called ‘Smiling’ that gets widely circulated on social media is nothing of the kind. It doesn’t feel Milliganesque at all.
someone kind sent me Spike Milligan`s poem on Smiling
Smiling is infectious
ou catch it like the flu
when someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too
I walked around the corner
and someone saw me grin
When he smiled I realized
I has passed it on to him
I tought about the smile
and then realised its worth
A single smile like mine
Could travel round the earth
So if you feel a smile begin
Don`t leave it undetected
Start an epidemic
And get the world infected.
This poem was commented on in Facebook but I had never heard of it.
I am looking for a poem about abortion by Spike Milligan. Do you have it?
I am looking for the poem about Smiling, but cannot find it.
