another five hundred . . .

The Author's invitation to read from his own collected poems
at the Truculent Polecat gastro-pub during the Edinburgh Festival 
is abruptly withdrawn again this year when fantastically funny TV

from his best-selling sequel to 'Five Hundred Favourite Fart Jokes"

when veteran performance poet Derwent Fiddler caused

event.  "If it's not Harry bloody Potter they're not interested!" 
he grumbled as he was separated from the screaming infant.
