"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Tez Watson started writing poetry following a twenty year career in the Royal Air Force and has seen his output increase in both number and quality since joining forWORDS - a local writing group in Forres, Scotland - about two years ago.

Originally from the West Riding of Yorkshire and always fascinated by words his poems are as broad as they are long, covering all manner of subjects expressing everything from humour to outrage.

He has a self-published collection entitled "On The Way Home" which is available for sale as a download (Amazon) or in print by mail order (Etsy).

Well "Aye" said the lad
"Aye" said the Dad
"Aye" said the brother "True"
and just for good measure
the Uncle said "Aye" too

"Nay" said the Dad
"Nay?" asked the lad
"Nay?" said the brother too
then the Uncle said "Yer faither's right"
"It's nay fer the likes o' you"
