‘Things are gonna get worse’ – So now you know

Just when I think that things just have to get better, and they couldn’t possibly be any worse along comes the Salford bard John Cooper Clarke with his ‘Things are gonna get worse poem’.  This poem puts it all into hilarious perspective 😀  Love this man’s poetry!

  1. So many things mentioned of a dire nature, yet his use of humor, alongside a great rhythm and rhyme scheme makes for a rather entertaining fatalism.

    • An ‘entertaining fatalism’ very aptly describes Cooper Clarke poetry Adam 🙂 Glad you enjoyed this (he’s quite a legend in Manchester and Salford – very northern humour)
