Tony Jennett Poems


I scour the cottage for signs of past presence
L ike a famished orphan at the erstwhile site
O f a long-spilled rice-sack, grubbing some essence,
V estige of sustenance. Hope gutters fitfully not quite

wafting over memory's embers

By jumping to the wrong conclusions
And intellect, perhaps, divines
Too much by reading twixt the lines

To build another Disneyland
Upon the Whitehouse lawn

For one so rich in spirit. Yet I won

Tony Jennett Biography

Teacher for 15years 'til they realised I was so useless they kicked me upstairs and made me an adviser
The Hills and the Sea are in my blood My favourite quotation: - It's Better to keep your mouth shut and appear a fool than to open it and remove all doubt
