Ode to Eamonn Holmes - International Poetry Day
I was invite on to Eamonn Holmes, drive time show on Talk Radio on Thursday to do a poem for International Poetry Day. I had very little notice but cribbed the below from his Wiki page. Such a nice man and he loved his paean.
Ode to Eamonn
From Sky News Sunrise to GMTV
You liven up our mornings while we drink our tea
And since we saw you on Good Morning Britain
We’ve loved your Norn Iron charm and were smitten
Broadcaster, anchor, writer, other half to Ruth
You’ve got a nose for a story and go after the truth
Showing us how The Other Half Lives and getting stealthy
Peering into the homes of the rich and wealthy
And giving us all FOMO
Looking for George on Lake Como
Oh Mr Holmes, even though you were dropped from Who do you think you are?
To millions of viewers you will always be a star
The brightest of branches on your family tree
The much loved face of breakfast tv
Now filling the airwaves not just the settee.
