Pancake

Pancake pancake why won’t you mix?

Pancake pancake why do you stick?

Pancake pancake why don’t you go to plan?

Pancake pancake why do you get burnt in the pan?

Pancake pancake this should have been fun

pancake pancake why do you run

when you’re stuck to the ceiling it’s no fun

Pancake pancake I would have had you with lemon and syrup 

but I am laughing and crying so much I have got the hiccups.

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.
