Overview

It Never Rains by Roger McGough - an expanded edition of comic verse and free line drawings, from the nation's favourite poet

While up at Magdalen
Spent the time dagdalen.
Moved on to Caius
Became the baius knaius.

'Oxford Blues' is one of the many new poems in this expanded and revised edition of The State of Poetry, Roger McGough's book of short humorous verse which was published in 2005 as part of Penguin's 70s series celebrating its 70th anniversary. From a poem commissioned to commemorate Dylan Thomas in just 140 characters, which unfortunately comes to an end mid-word, to a pre-emptive erratum notice, these poems show McGough at his inventive, hilarious best - and there are also new line drawings by the author offered at no extra cost.

'The patron saint of poetry' Carol Ann Duffy
