Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

After reading a few quotes from famous people posted on Twitter, I decided to create and post some of my own. Unlike the other quotes, which were mainly serious or witty, my quotes tended to be silly and humorous, and were posted as #Twittclass items. Reading through these posts sparked some ideas for nonsense verse and so this book was born. As the poems are short, Twittclass makes the ideal companion for those moments on the toilet when you have little else to do but stare at the wall opposite and dream what you'll do when you win the lottery. Good reading Peter Barns.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Peter Barns

Author - Poet - Versifier Born in Harlsden on the outskirts of London in 1943, Peter Barns spent his formative years living beside Regent's Park. Educated at a Secondary Modern school, he left with just one qualification in 'O' Level Art. Passing through a variety of occupations after leaving school, he finally ended up working in the construction industry as an electrician. After taking his City & Guilds, he became an electrical engineer and spent the next twenty years working on building sites. Somewhere in there he got married and divorced - a couple of times - and had two children. He moved to the Highlands of Scotland in the late 1980's along with his partner. With the move came a new occupation - counselling people with alcohol and drug problems - which he did for six years before managing a charitable company recycling redundant computers back into the community. Now retired he spends his time writing and refurbishing houses.
