About this title


The title poem has been one of the most anthologized poems in England and the U.S. for thirty years. The unforgettable blend of the laconic and the serious is what became instantly recognizable as the Brock voice. He has published nine collections of poetry, a novel, and an autobiography in prose and poetry.

About the Author:

Edwin Brock was born in London in 1927 and worked as a policeman, journalist and advertising writer. His death in 1997, just before his 70th birthday, brought to an end a body of poems which had first been noticed in the late 1950s, in the USA as well as in Britain. Sharp, colloquial, shrewd, direct and often humorous, Brock's poems are highly original. Two of them, 'Five Ways to Kill a Man' and 'Song of the Battery Hen', are among the best-known poems of the twentieth century.
