On the afternoon of 3 June, there was poetry in De Bonte Koe (the Spotted Cow) pub again.
This time, Jaap Montagne was the presenter.
His predecessor, Pink Meltzer, was one of the poets on stage.
Her poems included one about onions, and one in English.
Then Aad van der Kraan, about jackdaws.
After a pause, Agatha Dekkers from Alkmaar.
Then, Gusta Aangeenbrug, whose poems included one on mass dismissal of workers.
The work of the next poet, Han Ruijgrok, included a poem against Ms Mei Li Vos.
This member of the Right wing of the Dutch social democrat party parliamentary group had attacked elderly workers.
In a pause, Melle Stoel played banjo.
Then, Brigit Weezepoel, with global warming and other themes.
Then, Paul Delfgauw.
Then, Frans Terken.
Finally, poems by yours truly, about painting.
