What's Wrong with the Street!
Roads closed / leading no-where we carry onthrough the thick haze and fogshrugging off the false promisesand hopeit’s pissing it down with rain (again)and every direction seems wrong.In it for the long haulfighting with othersand ourselves[caught up in traffic]while the piti-ful screams “WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!”can be heard from up topas the cameras monitor / GPS tracks our every move- I’m just trying to make it through.[4Word by HARRY WHITEWOLF]

What's Wrong with the Street! Review

    What's wrong with the street?  This simple question has far-reaching implications.  To me, the street represents the path of the disenfranchised.  Some of these people sleep on the street.  The street can be a site of violence and discrimination.  It can also be a place to reminisce and think of simpler times.  The author's frustration and anger over the predicaments he encounters every day is crystal clear.  Andy is the voice of the street and its discontent.

    Another very good collection by Andru Curingtin! (I think I pronounced his name right there).One thing I've noticed this time around is how balanced his poems are, for example in "Victims" he comments on the victims being killed by bombs and 4x4s, he blames ISIS but also comments on how the EDL need to sod-off too, just leave the innocent out of this madness.Again in this collections he has included links to news reports so that you can read up on what that particular poem was about.

He also has a link of Richard Spencer getting punched, you can never get bored watching that video.I'm guessing I must be a similar age to Andy because when he reminisces about his youth, I have similar memories, also as we have both got older similar things piss us off.Favourite poem was "How Not to be a Sucker" which is made up of one brilliant line...."… don‟t read THE DAILY MAIL."

    I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the advance copy of this book, I read the book in about 2 days it's another page turner, Once again Andy produces a mind blowing read! It's every day life captured in a series of poems that demonstrate a whole host of feelings , My favourites are Sly Stallone & bread, More money than fucking sense, and Visitors guide to BRATFUD, they had me smiling and nodding in agreement, It's a great read!
