Book Description

The First in a series of poetry compilations by SB Mann the author of the recently Published Novel "Prisoners Families Dolls and Judgements" Explores a range of themes about personal relationships that all readers will easily be able to identify with: Love, heartbreak, injustice, betrayal, forgiveness, family relationships and the loss as well as retention of innocence are all tackled in a simple yet thought provoking way. The simplicity of his style, (SB believes poems should Rhyme however loosely that word is interpreted and not go on for to long ) adds to the power of the ideas behind each. So much so that the first Edition of the collection has been renamed at the last minute to Greetings Cards with Attitude. If you have ever read a Christmas , Get Well, Valentines or With Sympathy card and thought I like those sentiments, then this Poetry compilation will be right for you. That doesn't mean that the content within is all mushy and gushy, far from it. SB can be bitter and angry as well as loving and caring, just like the rest of us. It is this mix that when taken together adds to the power of the collection more than any individual poem, Although he freely admits that some, still make him very emotional because of the circumstances in which they were written. His own short forward to the anthology sheds a bit of light on this global context without boring. He would much rather you make up your own mind as to which specific poem make you reach for the tissues or kick the metaphorical Cat. My personal favourite is the final poem which addresses the topic off forgiveness, far easier to say than to do. I know that this particular Poem is still on the Wall in house of one family member more than 3 years after it was first given to them. I am sure that at least some part of "Greetings Cards with attitude" will have the same emotional effect on you. It is an open and revealing work which is simultaneously deeply personal and yet globally appealing.
I have included two of his short Poems "Living in my shoes" and "The Meeting" Below.

Read the papers, Hear the news
Listen to, Opposing views
Conjugate. On all the facts
Analysing. All the acts
But judgement cannot be complete
Unless you live. Upon my street

Apologise or simply let you speak
To gain the wisdom that I deeply seek
Deny me this, then I can never learn
Or know, if your forgiveness, I could earn.
I will listen, if that's what you choose.
For I have little left, that i can lose.
Except my final grip on sanity
Please grant my wish and this will set us free.

Just typed up this last poem and realised without spoiling that it could almost have been written by Graham from Prisoners Families Dolls and Judgements. Must ask SB about this next time I see him.
