Ian Graham


Grape Expectations

Is wine still fine
If bought online?
Le fruit de la vigne,
Is it OK en ligne?
But yes! Mais oui! It’s très très bon
Except for Cybernet Sauvignon.


A British writer and translator based in Belgium, Ian Graham mainly earns his crust with pieces on the environment, occupational health and safety, industrial relations and social inclusion. So his light verse is light relief. In the finest bardic tradition, he also sings songs and brews beer. In 2013, he published Mimes, Chimes and Rhymes, a “caustic meets slapstick” collection illustrated by Belgian artist Emilie Vercruysse. More details at http://www.ianodes.com/. Ian moderates InkedIn, a light verse group on LinkedIn.
