Sample text

Then comes the stage that so often is missed, which is for the children to analyse where they have succeeded or not. This is not for the teacher to do, but for the children – and for them to look objectively at their own work. Until you start to evaluate your writing critically you can’t begin to develop or improve as a writer. ROGER MCGOUGH: Well, if I don’t have anything specific to write about, doodling with words and phrases usually sets me off. Words themselves lead me on to an idea often.

They offer protection. ’ So I’d got the rhyming scheme for the first couple of lines, but not for the others yet. A knock at the door Open it? Better had. Five heavy cats, mean and bad. By this point I’d thought of the main joke of the poem, which is vital to the whole thing, which is the wordplay on ‘protection’. In this poem, it’s a reference to the Mafia – gangsters that run extortion rackets. They force people to pay them money, and in return they offer security and protection from others. Once I had that idea, I knew exactly what the poem would be like.

Sauce-fox ‘Sauce-fox’ is very much a homage to Ted Hughes’ ‘Thought-Fox’! I step outside. Imagining perhaps He had chosen this garden This particular garden because Of me. Of us, the family Who would wish him no harm.
