“The rocks are all in my head!”
Gertcha Cowson, AKA Gertcha the Disabled Poet is a working class poet who belongs to no one genre. Yet has a hand in all!
Originally using his scribbles as a self-therapeutic exercise, Gertcha has written over a hundred odd poems, proses etc. and is finally ready to share them with the hoi polloi and all sundry.
Introduced by the poet himself his works cover mental health, living with physical disabilities and constant pain. Also he touches on the environment, life and social observations, discrimination, the oppressive nature of Babylon and his love for all things.
This book also has a quasi-autobiography running through as the Adventures of Bipolar Boy, from birth to now.
Albeit in a comic book style narrative.
