It's not easy being a superstar poet, as Belfast comedian Marcus Keeley reveals in this well smart vid. Seriously, it's flippin' ace.



The ancient Celts believed that poetry is the highest form of art.

Whether they were right or not is a moot point.

One thing, though, is beyond debate.

Life in the fast lane as a superstar poet is tough.

Tougher than a badly cooked steak in boot camp in fact.

But don't take my word for it.

Here's Rake & Herald local soak and the Bard of Belfast City himself, Monsieur Marcus Keeley, with the videographic evidence to prove it.

Shame about that bread, mind.

Looked quite nice.




The above vid is embedded here on the Rake & Herald from Marcus' excellent YouTube channel, which you are strongly advised to check out here.
