    I'd like to see his poem, commissioned by the Guardian in 1991, added to PoemHunter.

    Wish I could see the television film poem Blasphemers Banquet again - does anyone know where a dvd of it can be acquired?

    Where's 'Them & Uz'? Any chance of adding it?

You're every bit as good as that lot are!)
