Poetry with Goats is a project I started a few days after I got my first diagnosis back in March 2020. I volunteer to help look after goats in a woodland and, in the first lockdown, it seemed the, erm, obvious thing to do to read poetry to them. I may have just had a cancer diagnosis and the world may have been seemingly falling apart, but there’s always the woods, and goats and poetry.
This poem is dedicated to all the other Not Dones. In whatever way life asked you if you were done: here is an answer.
(Warning – one use of explicit language).
