I prefer to keep such personal details off messageboards.

I wouldn't want to upset Jacob Trevor Roberto de Pfeffel Wayne Tarquin Reginald Bababarararacucucudadada by revealing his full name.

Barbar:

You are taking this poetry stuff quite serious.
It is almost making me quite delirious.

There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in
But they're ever so small
That's why the rain is thin.

Bababarararacucucudadada
Is a mouthful in any language
And a name not in common usage

Bababa is more concise
And would sound rather nice
From the lips of Mamama to Dadada

But Dadaists may scoff
"Enough is enough.
Dissing our art is a sacrilege."

So go your own way
And I'll have my own say
And enjoy Q's input
As accomplice

So bababa is good
Because rarara sounds posh
And cucucu though seasonal
Is far too attritional
And dadada sounds too much like ta ta

You might want one about cricket, Q.

Test Match Special - The Ashes Poem by Murray Lachlan Young

Itís time again for twenty-two
To stand fore-square upon the turf
The baggy green and navy blue
Let cork and leather strike the earth

The willow-crack the ball in flight
Oh quicken hearts and hungers burn
The gold and green, the red and white
In quest to hold the sacred urn

But can it be true what the papers all say?
The Aussies are lost and in deep dissaray?
With talk of indiscipline throwing the book
Of Arthurís dismissal or Warnerís right hook

And will Clarky turn up? Will Watson survive?
Can Agar and Hughes keep the Aussies alive?
Will Trott be on shot? Cook hit the boil?
With KP the nuts and Jimmy the foil

Will England be ruthless and brutally strong?
Or will the whole thing go unfeasibly wrong?
To the echoes of gleeful Australian cries
About rabbits in headlights and Ďchuckersí of pies

For it wouldnít take memeralogical* classes
To recall the Kiwis where kicking our arses
Just six months ago, so shall we say no?
But if asked to place odds, now which way would one go?

For the summer is young and its starting to flow
So itís out with the mic and itís on with the show

Where:

Aggers is anticipating,
Boycs is busy barbilating
Blowers encapsulating
Ashers is corroborating

Vaughny is expostulating,
Grumpers coolly cogitating,
Victor is extrapolating,
Tuffers is discombobulating,

So:

Tune in for patter on bowler the batter
From Devon to Dacca, from here to the WACCA
As cricketing matters went off like the clappers
There isnít a doubt that weíre in for a cracker,

From under to over From Dubai to Dover
To Woolamaloo weíre all here for the test
(Now available on iplayer app)
For the last word in commentary, from the audio promontory,

Of Test match special, quite simply the best

*new word

This is a longshot.

Some years ago Radio 1 had an Asian Week (or some such). As a part of that week there was a poem about the First Sikh War and how the Rani led the mighty Khalsa in to battle, whilst carrying her child, clad in a white sari before she was cut down by a British sword and the Khalsa was routed. (As depicted in Flashman and The Mountain Of Light if it sounds familiar.)

Any way the poem was brilliant. I have no idea who wrote it and I have no idea what it was called. Any suggestions out there?

Fuck me you fucking c**t, what the fuck are you asking you fuck. About some fucking fuck of a fucking poem fuck all of us have a fucking clue and you fucking ask us to fucking help you out what the fuck you fuck, fucking Barbar! :D

Did that ryhme? Was it dada?

Found this though:

Babar ruled over Khurasan and hath terrified Hindustan.

    The Creator taketh no blame to Himself;
    it was death disguised as a Mugal who made war on us.
    Thou, O God, feel pain?
    Creator, Thou belongest to all.

All I can find is this: http://www.sikhfoundation.org/sikh-punjabi-language-studies/punjabi-poetry-on-war-amarjit-chandan/

You vain bastard! :D Barbar!!!!

Je Barbar is a lovely bloke I am just bantering with him. He once threw threw me in front of a bus, so he deserves all he gets from me here ;)
He didn't even show me the courtesy to throw some bread in the road, thinking I was some kind of a sea gull.

I have looked Barbar and I am sorry to say I can find nothing. There is a movie out there I would love to pin down. Can't find it :(
I know what you could be going through, frustration I think they call it.

I had to beat the shit out of him to get him to come here, also he visited his solicitor to make arrangements in case his belonging here upset Mrs Barbar. I kid you not Mac he told me this in confidence.
