I just stumbled upon this site and registered immediately. I love Stephen, whenever I am trying to write, he is a part of that funny little background atmosphere that surrounds the process. Does anyone else feel a sense of others at their shoulder like that...

I wrote a poem sometime ago that I always heard either Stephen or Sir John Guilgude(is that how you spell him?) delivering at some great international, ear nose and throat specialists award ceremony.

Here it is...

ALL THAT WAS MOIST

CONGEALMENT HATH AFFLICTED

QUIVERING, SECRETED, BY FINGERNAIL EVICTED

GONE THE WHISTLING NOSTRIL

GONE THE GLISTENING HARP-STRING

NOW IN CROSS EYED SCRUTINY

MERE FINGER AND THUMB PLAYTHING

BE-STALKED WITH SINGLE RAPIER HAIR

PLUCKED NOT FROM THE HEAD

BUT TORN FROM SALTY CATACOMB

WHERE RAVAGED SINUS BLED

I think Stephen could make that sound incredible,I would love to hear him do it.
