I live in Rostrevor and have been writing since September 2005. I’m not quite sure why I started writing but have produced a lot of poems since then. Mostly these are about my environment here in the Mourne Mountains and my feelings as a woman, social observer and an inhabitant on planet earth. I am on my third career, none of them related to writing, have two grown up children and six hens.

I wish to be a member of the glitterati by Susan Farrell

I wish to be a member of the glitterati,
I need promotion from the shiterati.
Invites to trendy do's
Hanging out, with you know whos.
Kissing hands with all my fans,
polite exchanges on future plans.
Membership of the country club,
Friendly greetings in all the pubs,
consultation on important opinions,
Far above the various minions.
What an elevated position for me,
I feel like I'm up a tree
Better not fall out.
