I have a portfolio of features, reviews, poetry and short fiction published in all sorts of places - Belfast Telegraph, Tribune, Ireland's Own, Dalhousie Review, Fairlight Books, Reader's Digest, Reality, Lapwing Poetry, Ink, Sweat & Tears, Spillwords, Dear Reader, Amethyst Review, Black Bough, to name a selection.  Oh, and the odd BBC radio contribution. I wrote books on retailing, on dealing with job losses and a biography of film star Stephen Boyd.

This is a series of (hopefully) funny poems from hundreds I've written over the years (inspired by the likes of Spike Milligan and Roger McGough) to provoke a smile in these odd times.

We go together

Like crackers and cheese,

Like thank you and please,

Like skip and rope,

Like water and soap,

Like moon and stars,

Like jams and jars,

Like Morecambe and Wise,

Like pork and pies

Like seek and hide,

Like Bonnie and Clyde,

Like comb and hair,

Like table and chair,

Like Ant and Dec,

Like Fiona and Shrek,

Like peas and pod,

Like hook and rod, 

Like bread and butter.

Like mumble and mutter,

Like Minnie and Mickey,

Like glue and sticky,

Like Adam and Eve,

Like ho and heave,

Like Batman and Robin,

Like thread and bobbin,

Like Homer and Marge,

Like canal and barge,

Like Barbie and Ken,

Like cluck and hen,

Like Jack and Jill,

Like Ben and Bill,

Like Hansel and Gretel,

Like flower and petal,

Like Tom and Jerry,

Like Christmas and merry, 

Like bacon and eggs,

Like stockings and legs,

Like Black and Decker,

Like wood and pecker,

Like bow and arrow,

Like wheel and barrow,

Like click and clack,

Like train and track,

Like fish and chips,

Like walnuts and whips,

Like Watson and Holmes,

Like barbers and combs,

Like Wooster and Jeeves,

Like autumn and leaves,

Like finish and start

(And, I do apologise),

Like beans and fart.
