Notes

  • Dedication: To the memory of David Campbell and Bob Brissenden - who laughed
  • Author's note:Foreword... I first started writing light verse as a sideline to my 'normal' poetry to perform at the 'poets' lunches' which used to be held by the ANU Staff Association in the 1970s and 80s....Since those days I have occasionally written light verses on other less alcoholic matters, but have generally not included them in my 'normal' collections for fear of 'confusing the issue' or appearing 'lightweight'. Geoff Page.
