Everything is still so weird. So we need to let our hair down a bit. We need to have a few laughs.
So here is the one and only Wendy Cope. She’s a witty one. I love so many of her verses. There are too many to choose from. I would have loved to include The Uncertainty of the Poet (rather remarkably set to music by jazz singer Kurt Elling) for example.
Instead, I decided to restrict myself to her first anthology, Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis.
- Wendy Cope on Wiki
- The text of Waste Land Limericks NOT, as this site audaciously claims, that she is American!
- The other texts are not online, but you can see a few on Google Books. But far better, simply buy it!
