Martin Parker is a recently ageing Devon poet who makes light verse out of a lifetime of king-sized disappointments and adversity.
His work has appeared in national publications including The Spectator, The Oldie, The Literary Review, The Sunday Telegraph and, surprisingly, also in slim volumes normally devoted entirely to proper poetry, as well as on various poetry websites.
His first chapbook, Pick 'n' Mix was followed by Rubbing the Lamp, a collection of forty-six pieces of verse that are not always as light as they may first appear. Their flavours once again include Acid Drops, Allsorts and Soft Centres.
