Laurie’s Bundle of Poetic Humour

Laurie’s Bundle of Poetic Humour

76 of Laurie’s best humorous poems from over the years to lift everyone’s mood, as Laurie channels his passion for life and his keen observations into all his poetry.

This 10th book in the series captures all the joy of that journey to tickle your funny bone and put a smile on your face.

Increasingly over the eight years since Laurie’s first published book, he has matured and stretched the dimensions of his poetic themes and descriptions of life that many people identify with, some even having quite a surprise as to their reactions.

​​​​​​​This book encapsulates some of his most well received humorous poems that Laurie reads at live gigs and events or are frequently requested favourites giving an opportunity to revisit and laugh at his often “naughty but nice” descriptions of life and some of its most awkward moments!

Of course all of Laurie’s book sales still donate to the charity Help for Heroes.

Our World in Verse

Our World in Verse

Another bumper book is Laurie’s ninth book in the series following his popular “tried and tested” format of romance, humour, reflection and tragedy that affect all our lives.

A celebration and demonstration of Laurie’s growing poetic attributes and prolific poem production.

Included are four themed articles and related poems that were published in his monthly column in The Sussex Newspaper AND for the very first time this latest book features eight poems with the stories behind the poems and how they came to be written.

There are also new poems about the still mischievous teddy bears “Ted and Beth” who are becoming increasingly popular alongside poems on our strange last year or so during the pandemic and the poets experiences regarding this.

Look out for the comprehensive Appendix section which explains some not so obvious poems!

This is an even bigger “bumper book” because not only does it have added new material as of his articles mentioned above and his usual multitude of brand new poems, but also a smattering of poems from across all of his books.

POETRY CORNER – 13/06/2020

Today’s poem is by the Irrepressible Laurie Wilkinson of Eastbourne, East Sussex. who sent this funny poem in after reading about my snoring pug dog keeping everyone awake.
Poet Laurie’s son served in the military for 10 years, and the proud dad has been donating everything he makes from his book sales to Help for Heroes since his first in 2014. The former East ender just had his eighth book published, available from Lauriewilkinson.com and shows no signs of flagging…

Laurie has since had yet another poem published in the paper!

The Daily Mirror Newspaper 

Barely Heard

Ted and Beth are very happy
Contented bears and not bores,
Only now there is a little problem
Beth has told me that Ted snores!
So she is now quite desperate
To have a peaceful night.
For every time she drops off,
Ted’s snort gives her a fright.

He says it’s all an exaggeration
That many male bear’s growl,
But Beth is getting very angry,
And may smother him with a towel.
So there has to be a solution to,
This noise that comes from Ted.
For Beth states that if it continues
He must sleep in the spare bed.

Now that’s the way they managed
With no arguments, no pain.
Until both of them got lonely,
And had to sleep together again.

Write a Poem for You

Poetic Seeds to Fruition

Some poetic thoughts I had
Became seeds I then planted,
And began to grow strongly
But I didn’t take it for granted. 

Though words and poems flowed
In almost endless, florid streams.
And formed various topic notions
Far beyond my wildest dreams. 

As a down to earth and everyday
Style of poetic life expressions,
Burst into fruition and fulfilment
Tabling the world’s confessions

All Revealed

There may be nostalgia and surprises
When your inner world is revealed,
By the peeling away of barriers
That many secrets had concealed.

For everyone has private thoughts
Perhaps buried deep and never seen,
But confronted by observing words
You may learn what they can mean.

So allow perceptive insights in
To a world where they are known,
As it may be comforting to discover
Some fears are not yours alone.
