Piddly Fireworks are Poetry

Piddly Fireworks are Poetry

Bradford educated performance poet, comedian, musician and songwriter, John Hegley performs the rendition of his own poem about Bonfire Night.

He is of the opinion that there is joy in all fireworks, whether they are the aptly named ‘Piddly Ones’ which have massive names like ‘Green King’ which is not a king and is barely green and has little to offer or the genuinely huge ones,

Here it is:

Bonfire Night

The doors open
Everyone comes out
Everyone is ready
For fireworks
All except the dog, Eddie
He is shut up in the sheddie
Even out of doors we have indoor fireworks
Dad says it is better to be safe than dead
The air is full of the smell of next doors fireworks
Mum says they are very good this year
This year, Christopher is allowed
To help his dad to light the fireworks
He is very excited
He is very proud
He is twenty eight
