EASTBOURNE, England - May 8, 2014 - PRLog -- MyVoice Publishing would like to offer our congratulations to Laurie WIlkinson on the publication of his poem, Bar Room Star, in the Daily Mail on 8th May 2014.  You can find it on page 58.

Laurie, speaking from his Eastbourne home on hearing the news, is, in his own words, absolutely chuffed.  ' I feel my work now somewhat substantiated!........ I may have celebratory drink!!!!!!!'

The poem is in Laurie's book, Poetic Views of Life, in the humour section, page 15.  You can find his book in most book stores, and on Amazon

Here is the poem:

Bar Room Star

Every pub or place will have one

There are lots of them about,

And while everyone likes talking

He feels the need to shout.

Amongst his group of cronies

He must be the loudest bloke,

Then burst into raucous laughter

Every time he cracks a joke!

I turn my head to see him

But you couldn’t miss the noise,

For he’s the best at shouting

In the group of loud old boys.

We will all laugh at something

In our own personal way,

Within the bounds of reason

As appropriate for the day.

But this loud man doesn’t realise

His grating voice won’t nestle,

And he clearly has forgotten

The saying of the empty vessel.

So the loud mans noise continues

And his voice you couldn’t douse,

Though I have a deep suspicion

That at home he’s like a mouse!
