  1. Making a poem simply out of the dialects was good going. Glad you didn't miss out my part of the world :-)

  4. Great stuff - it seems to identify us each and all!

  5. I can read a lot into this. The dialects and what we call one another are good when looked at from the point of view of diversity but they also create a 'them' and 'us' situation, which can be a source of conflict.

  6. Hi,
    Your style of poetry is so cool. I so enjoy your humor, too.
    I think I need to be a Brit to understand some of this >>>>> exiting to Google!

  8. Happy New Year Andy - Many more besides all these, and each can be identified by accent.

  9. Hi Tony, why would I want to give beautiful Yorkshire a miss? In fact I was over at the University library in Leeds, just the other day!

    Thanks Phil! You understand much more than me then!

    Hi BB, Yummie Brummie, like Misty's Big Adventure, perhaps!

  10. Hi Sue@Tumblewords, these are just some words I hear everyday.

    Hi Carole, Conflict is the thing, without conflict you haven't got a story, have you?

    Hi Gel, I'm on my way to your blog right now!!!

  11. Thanks Angie,
    Words first, understanding not required, however, maybe, perhaps, go on then you've twisted my arm. I'll add some definitions to the post later.

    Hi Stan, Happy New Year to you too...I think I've covered the locals and the Yokels before, anyway!

    Thanks Crafty Green, and many thanks for the prompt!!!

  15. Andy,

    it sounds like a nursery rhyme to me (I love nursery rhymes and I also read about the epoque's world play that told real stories).

    and I am sorry if my attempt made you too sad. The horned one is not as blak as I strive to picture it sometimes...

  16. Hi Annamari, you didn't make me sad, I was only trying to echo your words, perhaps, not very clearly - for the record, I love your poem and the spoken word recording of it.

    The Epoque's world play has caught my interest, is it Parisian? Fin de siecle? La Belle Epoque, perhaps? Phew!
