Roots by Roger McGough

On looking through the latest e-bulletin, from the Poetry Society I came across a link to Roger McGough’s poem, Roots. The poem was commissioned as part of “Look North More Often” and can be seen, in it’s full glorry in London’s Trafalgar Square until 4 January. I enjoyed reading McGough’s poem. I don’t think that one can claim that it is the greatest piece of poetry ever written (indeed I’m sure that the poet wouldn’t make such a claim), however it is worth a read and a trip to Trafalgar Square if you happen to be in the vicinity. For the poem please visit http://www.poetrysociety.org.uk/content/commissions/xmastree/roots/
