In the end I was only able to read one short poem though I was promised two originally. This was mainly due to the function room at the Florence Arms being jam packed!Obviously a popular venue and perhaps made more so by the teasing and leg-pulling indulged in by the creator and MC of this event Maggie. All the more quirky when juxtaposed with her quite serious demeanor!Mercifully she left us newbies alone. I don't know what to expect next time though.
There were some excellent musicians and singers, truly masterful and I could understand if these were chosen over what may be always some over-indulgent poetry!
