People of England, Scotland and Wales lock up your Jaffa Cakes…

As in February 2012, Poet, Humorist, Cartoonist and Singer-Songwriter Paul Tubb has been living in Ireland for 10 years, so to celebrate he is on his way over to his home country and it’s neighbours and he’s bringing with him his pen, pencil, notepad, sketchpad and his lucky oven glove. He has plans to document his journey in poetry and pictures.

The result is, ‘A Poet’s Nonsensical Journey through England, Scotland and Wales’. A hilariously funny collection of Nonsense/Comic Verse with cartoon style illustrations that will display a unique and offbeat perspective of the three countries. Included within this collection is the hysterical prose journal of his time visiting his home Island.

So Children of all ages if it’s laughter and ridiculousness you require, ‘A Poet’s Nonsensical Journey through England, Scotland and Wales’ will be able to provide this for you and so much more…

Find out about the young girl from Stranraer who wants the alphabet changed, a man from Borth who has to finish in forth place, why all Dogs are English and many other things that you weren’t aware of regarding England, Scotland and Wales.

'The poems play with words and images in a way that makes you laugh. the great thing about this poetry is that it introduces readers to poetry whilst teaching them that using your imagination is a good thing.' Books Ireland

I laughed out loud at the poem about Welsh prawns holidaying in Dublin, and at the bespectacled badger. Tubb locates the outlandish in the mundane and has an eye for the quirky and unusual. - Inis Magazine Website (www.inismagazine.com)

Mistletoe and Root Beer: Comical Christmas Verse (Kindle Only)

Christmas Can Be Crazy, but is it as crazy as the Poems in this Collection of Christmas Verse?
Jokes inside of Christmas Crackers are possibly the funniest things on the planet, but are they as funny as the poetry in this volume?
Well it is for you to decide. By reading, Mistletoe and Root Beer, a collection of zany Christmas Rhymes written by Paul H. Tubb, you will be able to answer the questions posed above.

The poetry is on subjects as diverse as, an odd choice of casting for a nativity play, A Priest who does not look forward to the Christmas season, A young girl worried about Santa's Thoroughness and many other festive situations.

P.S. Although Paul loves puns, he is far to gracious to incorporate the pun, 'Kris Kindle' when referring to this Christmas based E-book.

The Cheeseburger Fairy of Littlehampton 

If you find yourself in Littlehampton,

Please, keep your eyes peeled.
There’s a fairy that resides there,
In the region of Brookfield.
And she lives for granting wishes
Whatever your hearts desire.
Like most fairies she longs to give
People what they require.
Well that’s not strictly accurate,
You, at least, have to say please
And even then, you’ll get your wish
Only if it’s a Burger with Cheese.
That’s the only wish she learnt how
To grant at Fairy school.
She was normally too busy dreaming
And acting the class fool.
So when it came to graduate,
All that she could do
Was produce delectable cheeseburgers
With pickles and onion too.
So if you now see this fairy type creature,
It won’t be a total surprise
And you can get a free cheeseburger,
But you’ll have to pay for your fries.

Worrying Christmas Lyrics 

Something bothered Jenny.

Her mother asked, “what’s wrong?”

Jenny replied, “I’m worried,

Due to the words of a Christmas song.”
Her Mum she was surprised and asked

“Which one is making you frown?”

Jenny then said, “It’s the one

About Santa Claus coming to town.

Well in the song it mentions a list

And it claims he checks it twice,

Well I am sorry but I do not believe

That two times will suffice.

I check my homework at least four times

Before I’m Certain of it

And that’s not as important as Santa’s list,

Which has to be right, every bit.

Every Child in the world’s on it and

There are billions as far as I’m aware,

I would like to think Santa, over the list,

Took appropriate care.

The song then tells all the children

To be good for goodness sake.
Well if you’re good you could be left out

Due to a silly clerical mistake.”

The Bespectacled Badger from Ballsbridge 

The bespectacled badger from Ballsbridge

Found it difficult to see.

The spectacles that gave him his name

Were totally and utterly

Useless, as they didn’t serve

The purpose that they should.

Although when he put them on himself

The badger thought they would.

He found them whilst rummaging in the bins

Of the local cinema.

This may also give you an idea

Why they’re as useless as they are.

They’re not glasses for improving sight

They’re for enhancing the effects

Of a movie, I believe they’re commonly known

In the trade as 3-D specs.

(c) Paul H Tubb
