John Cornwell - Speak Easy 23/03/10

Another returning performer this month is John Cornwell, who is pretty much a regular feature now, much to our delight. This time he has a couple of poems which present a frivolous, irreverent view of international relations, the first of which is titled Dont Hide from Me, Argentina. He pokes fun at every conspiracy youve ever heard of, suggesting that theres a village just south of the River Plate where celebrities are innumerable. John tells us his second poem is about his birthday, which is coming up soon (we wish him many happy returns), and its just as funny as the first one. If love was an underlying theme all through Februarys Speak Easy event, then getting older holds a special place in Marchs, having been brought up by multiple performers which, we must say, is extremely appropriate as it is Speak Easys birthday too! We look forward to another year as good as this one.
