Hey everybody,

I'm looking for this one poem. It's called italic and goes something like this

I used to live in capitals
my life was (something) phallic
but now I'm sadly lowercase
with the occasional
italic

it's a also a visual poem with the first two lines written in capitals, the next two in lowercase and the last in italic font.
would be great if somebody knew the writers name.

    You have this poem by Roger McGough practically word perfect:

    I USED TO LIVE IN CAPITALS, MY LIFE INTENSELY PHALLIC
    but now i'm strictly lower-case, with the occasional
    italic

    Sorry I can't do italic type here.
