John Cornwell - Speak Easy 23/02/10

After Sarah we have John Cornwell, reading his poem, or rather letter, titled From Sid and Edna. John says he wrote it because of the number of round robins he gets at Christmas. I had to look this up, so for those of you that dont know, a round robin is a single letter sent to multiple addresses like kids do for Christmas thank you letters. John does a good job of drawing our attention to just how ridiculous this tradition is perhaps criticising the lack of proper communication that seems to be coming about and does so in an absolutely hilarious manner. I think his very non mechanical delivery actually helps the poem, making it seem more human, aiding him in making his point. Just the one poem from John, but it really is excellent this is one of the must see videos from the February Speak Easy.
