Everything's Heating Up Nicely

Poems 2018 - 2022

ByJohn Alexander Scott

John Alexander Scott’s third collection of poem’s runs through the early Brexit years, the Covid lockdowns and the over-arching climate crisis. Truly troubling times! His poems suggest the Enlightenment has been forgotten as we enter a new Dark Age, an age of secular superstition, carefully managed and exploited by self-obsessed right-wing politicians, their “witchfinder” clergy media and all funded by the insatiable narcissism and greed of the corporations and the billionaire class. By turns provocative and motivational, his poems are reflective, compassionate, self-deprecating, bemused, humorous, concerned, nostalgic, loving, surreal, perceptive, romantic, angry, hopeful, sarcastic, resilient. Something there for everyone, surely! “A wicked satirical edge. Blisteringly funny and meaningful, his work will make you crack up… while simultaneously filling you with a mortal terror with the prospect of a bleak and alienating future. The Kabaret at Kittchen, Hawkshead. “Scott's writing takes an angled yet committed view on environmental issues, political ineptness, the growing power of the right-wing, personal relationships, a healthy obsession with the banal and a helping of the pure daft as well.” Lancaster Spotlight. “F***king brilliant! Reminds me of Ivor Cutler” Laura Taylor, poet/compere.
