Dont Look Down

Before you blame the fruit down on the ground you should first look up at the tree it fell from; the poor didn’t create poverty

JB & Shakespeare an’ that

So, I was asked by BBC Radio Manchester to write a poem for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare, William Shakespeare that is (obviously) or just Bill to those still living that knew him well (and there’s a few…or so it would seem)… anyway, the BBC wanted a modern day version of a Shakespeare classic…..and they asked me!!! Now I’m sure you can imagine my initial response once I’d pick myself up off the floor …..Shakespeare?? Me?? Have you got the wrong number?? I’m the fella that still gets the balcony scene from Romeo & Juliet confused with Rapunzel (true dat) ….. but yes, they wanted me to re-write one of Shakespeare’s well known pieces……. so…. i did it, i really did it…i re-wrote a scene from Romeo & Juliet in a Salford/Manchester styleee bringing up to date (or summat).
So I’m off to Salfords BBC Media City this Thursday to film the poem which you’ll get to hear/see very soon. I do hope you like it….. I’m sure Bill will

Click the link below to hear/view the finished poem…. enjoy
