Don’t Drop The (English) Biscuit! By Danny Kemp


A cup of tea with a dunked biscuit sitting on the bottom!
If that’s how your day begins, does it make you feel rotten?

Do you pick it up with a spoon then lick the spoon clean?
Satisfying I know, but it’s not quite haute cuisine.

Do you leave it to the end sliding it down your throat,
Then take a furtive look around whilst silently you gloat?

Perhaps you’re the innocent kind, ignoring the sweet remains,
Held back from recognition by some moralistic reins?

HOWEVER, if you never dunk it you’ll never know what you’ll do,
so there you are, I’ll graciously leave the decision entirely up to YOU…Boom boom.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
