I'm a Soldier...get me out of here !
Tom's poetry is Raw,Emotional,Funny,and at times sad enough to bring out the tissues. He always tells it 'Like it is' and it is always from the heart. Tom has this gift of writing from 'Other people's shoes' as well as his own.His life in the Military has inspired many of the Soldier/War poems and his fight against Cancer reflects the sadness and trauma of this terrible illness. 'Warts and all'
Poems for Paula
"It is the sheer diversity of Tom's work that takes your breath away.This is graphically illustrated by the first poem. 'The Det' takes you to a situation that, thank God, most of us have never had to face, and leaves you wondering how you would have coped. Less bravely, then and afterwards, I suspect.
