Poet's Corner

Are you a narcissist?

Do you pose in pictures on your own?

Think you have pouting lips and eyes of marble stone?

Do you take ass and make it into class?

Do you look into the mirror and can’t tear your eyes away?

you can’t find a partner who is worthy of you

Have you got a blue steel or Marilyn Monroe pose?

Do you have too many clothes?

Do all your friends think you’re great?

Do you always arrive fashionably late?

Are you so fabulous and gorgeous

that people want to get you undressed
cause your birthday suit is the best.

and people fantasise about getting you in bed

Do you have no equal?

and the movie about your life should have a sequel

with you in the starring role

Do you have so much talent you can’t control

Then maybe you are a narcissist

God bless your soul!

Cause you might be a bit deluded.


About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
