i can’t stand it anymore

September 18, 2008

Michael Rosen (who somehow looks exactly like a Quentin Blake drawing himself) is the current Children’s Laureate in the UK, and in this fun clip performs his poem ‘I Can’t Stand It Anymore’ in Walthamstow. Sorry, I can’t embed a Guardian video, so you’ll have to hop over yourself. Promise it won’t be a waste of 47 seconds of your time!

    I like the irony of the clip but am not entirely convinced that qualifies as a poem. I am probably just old fashioned when it comes to poetry!
    Uncanny indeed how much he looks like the BFG, one of my all time favourite children’s books.
