John Hegley is one the most famous performance poets in the UK. On 27 February Y7 and Y9 students were treated to a 100 minute performance and poetry workshop with him as they had been studying his poetry in English. Here is one of John's comic poems called Relaxing with Taxidermy:
When their chihuahua got stuffed
they were really chuffed,
no need to feed her
or walkies on a lead her
no more poop to scoop
and doesn't she look smashing on the mantle piece?
She'll always look at the camera now.
I don't know why we bothered having her alive at all.
