Sports and corporate poetry by Mick Colliss

Poetry by Mick Colliss.

As a regular on the speaking circuit, Mick Colliss is widely regarded as one of Australia’s best story tellers. As a poet, he is held in equally high regard because his poems do the same thing - tell stories.  
What Rhymes with George? is a collection of modern-day poetry, written for the everyday person in a language everyone can understand. It’s about the headline makers, the events and the people who inspire, amuse, shock and entertain.
What Rhymes with George? covers a range of topics, from sports including rugby, swimming, AFL and cricket, to world events and personal anecdotes. Mick's recollections about a failed bet on the Melbourne Cup for his wife and standing on the battlefields at the Somme are two of the many highlights in this book.
Some of his poems are funny, others are thought provoking. But all are entertaining.

Proudly supporting The Cauliflower Club.
