Elaine Dignan

I mainly like to write humour. I had quite a few letters published in magazines in the ‘80s, and Woman magazine asked me to do a longer piece for them on post-natal depression. I also won a few caption competitions. I have specialised scientific and medical knowledge, and am currently thinking of ways to use this.

You by Elaine Dignan

Celestial sniper
Picking of at random
little sticks waving.
Arcing sweeping gun
Your Fun
Sometimes using buckshot
We all get peppered.

There is no divine plan
Just a guy with a beard
Acting macho
After a dram.
