Lucinda Creighton's Cheap Publicity Stunt

My poem, 'The Ballad of Lucy Kryton', which I penned in December, was published on Monday on The Bogman's Cannon and then re-published on Wednesday on

I am currently in negotiations with Marianne Faithfull about the possibility that she might sing the poem and release it as a single on iTunes.

This evening I learned that, in a tawdry publicity stunt designed only to give further publicity to my poem, Lucinda Creighton is planning to launch a new very right of centre political party tomorrow. 

I am outraged, and now plan to write a series of confusing letters to The Irish Examiner about the issue.
