Ann Thology with her bag of poems

Great Yarmouth poet Ann Thology has just published yet another collection of verbose poetry.

Entitled "More Gushing", all the poems involve the central theme of overflowing phrases. Ann Thology's poetry is fully enriched with emotional outpourings and infectious verbiage. Her characteristic poetic form is non-rhyming free verse, and she uses no full stops.

This is Ann Thology's 59th collection, and she is already working on her next one (or two or three or four).

When asked about the secret of her astounding productivity, she paused briefly and replied "Words - once I start writing, they just keep coming out - I can't stop them, and I haven't got time for any of that fancy rhyming stuff," she said, without any full stops. "I'm like," she added, "greased lightning on ice". But, apparently, that was the title of her next poem.

Copies of her poetry anthologies can be obtained at bookshops everywhere - and on all fast-moving conveyor belts.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
