The following are extracts from a big blue folder full of poems and writings collated over the years 1998 - 2007, which at some time I had christened “The Book of Platitudes”. I have been digging through them in spare moments and typing them up. I hope there are one or two of some value, or at least worth a thought, amongst the collection presented to you here.
