Luke Wright has been described as “one of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation” by The Independent. He writes bawdy bar room ballads about Westminster rogues and small town tragedies. He is a regular on BBC Radio 4 and the author of seven one man poetry shows, touring with them all over the world. His debut collection, ‘Mondeo Man’ was published in 2013 to great acclaim.

Editor’s Note: ‘Thunder, Lightning etc.’ appears in the Wenlock Poetry Festival 2014 anthology, and appears here with kind permission from the poet and the publisher.
