About Me

My virtue is that I say what I think, my vice that what I think doesn't amount to much.

“Take Heart, Illiterates”

Futility Closet:
For years a secret shame destroyed my peace–
I’d not read Eliot, Auden or MacNeice.
But then I had a thought that brought me hope–
Neither had Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Pope.

– Justin Richardson, Punch, 1952
