A lot of my poetry is kinda ‘rhyming sitcom’ inasmuch as they describe a (usually) imagined humorous scene or event. Often, I find that the same situation subsequently occurs in real life. I have a small collection of press cuttings that I can ‘pair’ with poems. The most classic example was one I wrote about cannibals suffering indigestion after eating a Christian missionary. Would you believe that a report later appeared in the national press of the descendants of a tribe of cannibals who wanted to make reparations to the family of a missionary who their forebears had eaten! What’s the chance of that happening? I wondered if anyone else has had the same experience? (about their poetry that is, not their grandad falling foul of cannibals!! 😂)
