I am an accountant with a sense of humour, which most people consider a contradiction. I live in the UK on the Wirral with my wife and two bitches. That's a Border Terrier and a Cockapoo, in case you're thinking I'm living the life of an African tribe leader who believes he's a gangsta rapper. I have three grown up children but have never quite managed to grow up myself.
At the age of eighteen, I was often mistaken for pop idol, Donny Osmond. Nearly four decades on and ravaged by time, the best I can now do in the look-a-like stakes is Richard Osman from BBC TV's Pointless. Osmond to Osman, how the mighty fall.

Chas Stramash is a poet.
He has been a poet since 2000. Not because of it, merely a coincidence.
He started off writing poetry about lava lamps, cows, grass and such like. He now writes poems about places, people, events, observations, countries, politics, culture, coffee… in fact, anything is pretty much within scope these days.
His poems are influenced by John Cooper Clarke, Spike Milligan, Luke Wright, Salena Godden, Byron Vincent, and Rick Lupert.
Much of his poetry is observational, often humorous, and very often satirical. His work has occasionally been compared with Spike Milligan’s, but he would never entertain the notion himself.
He has written one book of poetry for kids, which he takes with ... read more
