Pen
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


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

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