    Hi Michael,
    I am trying to contact you to obtain permission to display one of your poems Chocolate Cake in an art show that is called Visual Poetry in Tampa Florida. I do not find a way to contact you directly, and the website people were no help. I trust that you do not mind, and credits will be given to you and to the website where I found your marvelous poem. Contact me at gainor@tampabay.rr.com and I'll give you more information. Thanks so much!

    Hello folks
    Just to point out that I am not the Michael Rosen of 'Shaynew Press' who is a 'radical sex photographer', nor am I the Michael Rosen of Lincoln College Oxford who is a Marxist philosopher. It might be fun to be both, as well as me, but one life's enough, eh?
    luv
    Michael Rosen (er...English poet, not the US children's poet called Michael J.Rosen...I kid you not!)

Down Behind the Dustbin

Down behind the dustbin
I met a dog called Ted.
‘Leave me alone,’ he says,
‘I’m just going to bed.’
Down behind the dustbin
I met a dog called Roger.
‘Do you own this bin?’ I said.
‘No. I’m only a lodger.’
Down behind the dustbin
