The young poet Arnold Beeney collects First Prize in the annual
'Praise the Lord in All His Glory Competition' for his epic poem 
"God Knows What I've Done With My Life" in eighty-seven verses.
The prize is awarded by the Gospel League for the Advancement
of Christian Values in Literature.  Arnold plans to spend his prize
money on a trip to Bangkok where he hopes to continue his work
among the sex workers of Patpong, the notorious red light district. 
Good luck with that, Arnold.


  1. At what age are poets no longer referred to as young?

  2. The Author recalls he was described as 'a precocious young talent' until his thirtieth birthday. After that he was merely an 'aging enfant terrible'
