Ant the Rant is coming West

 
Soon on this site we will have contributions from  Ant the Rant -  bringing poetical satire to the satellite masses, misfits, pissed modernists and the i-groan generation. Unashamedly old school comic verse with rhyme, rhythm and reason, tongue-in-cheek social commentary. and a dollop of mushy peas on top. Life can seem bitter, but you can always have a lemonade top. 
 
Ant the Rant is a brilliant poet and performer, known in this part of the world through his performances at the KTF gigs. He always gets the crowd and he's always excellent. Now we will start publishing some of his poems on this site – you will not be disappointed but be warned: his humour can be caustic....
 
He has performed at spoken word evenings, comedy cabarets, festivals, night clubs, bars and galleries all over London and across the country. He had work commissioned by Radio 3, had his poetry aired on Radio 4 and been published in several magazines. 
 
Now it's our turn: It is our pleasure and privilege to bring you his word. We believe his take will have resonance to the Source readers and like us, you will enjoy his humour and wit, his take on life, bagels, sex, love, TV, drugs and January. Highly recommended! Watch this space!  
 
We suggest you have a look at his site: http://www.anttherant.com
And recommend you to buy his book Cutting Tongues
