Poet's Corner

Sweets and treats

Blessed are the appeasers
For they shall eat malteasers

Only stars eat mars bars
Don’t be dorky eat a yorkie

I pine for dime bar goodness
Eat a kit Kat chunky you young monkey

Buy me some flying saucers or I’ll divorce you
I’d like some fruit pastilles my fine friend
and don’t pretend you don’t like maoam
Be a sport and pass me some all sorts
I’d like to nab some dib dabs
Crunchies are fine to munchie all the way to wrapper
Speaking of rappers eat some M and Ms
Don’t whisper theirs plenty to eat
and before we are done
Don’t forget to run off these treats for being fats no fun.

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.
