Ian Graham


Byting Back

My verse won’t scan, the critics say?
Fans, to their plea be deaf!
I scanned all of my odes today.
Now they’re in PDF.


Ian Graham earns his crust by writing on social issues and the environment. 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. Samples and fresh daily doggerel at http://www.ianodes.com/. Graham and Vercruysse are currently working on a children’s coloring book full of weird animals and even weirder English and French verse.
