Introduction With Thanks To The Writing

William and John

Little Ann

Little Ann who thinks she’s big
Sells cans of lager at the Leaf and Fig.

Polite and charming
With a smile that’s disarming,
She pulls the curtains across
And leaves you with nothing.


This poem was written by John and William during a workshop at the Probation Hostel with poets Tim Turnbull and John Hegley, when they asked for ballad type lines about interesting people.
