Life is good! Life is inspirational!

There’s an English addiction
That really is rife
To moan about everything
They encounter in life
They complain about this
They complain about that
They protest and they grumble
And they go tit for tat
Be it about their work or their children
Their house or their car
They take moaning to new levels
But the complaint that’s by far
The most idiosyncratic of all
Just has to be
When they moan about the weather
Be it wet or sunny
For in winter they witter
About the cold and the rain
Then in summer the sun
Gives them cause to complain
So like ‘em or love ‘em
To be English for sure
Is to be in a state of discontentment
Where only tea is the cure!
For tea is quite magic
As it makes all things right
When the English have done battle
And there’s no gin in sight!


Summertime Twist

So a little something different to my normal poetry posts and a request to you all to support my son, Kit Dellow-Jones. He plays piano and trumpet and is heading towards a career as a professional musician with a scholarship to music college (conservatoire) in September.

He’s been shortlisted for an award as young music maker 2018 which has gone through the panel round and is now open to the public vote.

The write up doesn’t do justice to everything he does! This weekend alone he’s supported the county orchestra playing principle trumpet, played a gig at a jazz cafe as well as a charity gig raising over £1000 for ‘New Life Gambia’ supporting children in Gambia schools. Music is his life and it’s a joy to see it benefit others as well.

So please Click link and vote for him – it’s quick and easy! It doesn’t matter where you live! Just choose KIT DELLOW-JONES. 🎶😀🎶

To find out more you can find him on Twitter @kitdellowjones.
