Interview with Poet John David Lionel Brooke (Excalibur)

Initially a hoot getting my unpublished poem dramatized. On reflection, gratifying if viewers took my serious message to heart.

– John David Lionel Brooke on why he submitted to WILDsound

Matthew Toffolo interviews John David Lionel Brooke:

Matthew: What is the theme of your poem?

Easy access to firearms as an expression of twisted power over others is morally senseless and ridiculous in a nation that claims freedom as its motto.

Matthew: How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

John: My rapid fire little humorous, sardonic poem illustrates the ludicrous, unbridled ownership of firearms. I’d like my American readers/viewers to be motivated to take the matter of gun control seriously.

Matthew: How long have you been writing poetry?

John: I began writing, first with poetry in 2008, my first form poem was published within a month in Switzerland

Matthew: Do you have a favorite poet?

John: In this case it would be Ogden Nash.

Matthew: What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

John: Initially a hoot getting my unpublished poem dramatized. On reflection, gratifying if viewers took my serious message to heart.

Matthew: Do you write other works? Scripts? Short Stories? Etc.?

John: Yes, I write scripts, short stories, flash fiction, chap-books, and novels.

Matthew: What is your passion in life?

John: That my work will be understood, and emotionally move my readers.

Waiting in anticipation to experience my little poem being performed during the Wildsound Festival.
