Mick is an accomplished poet and is the 2021/22 President of the North Pine Bush Poets Inc.

He is one of the featured comperes at the Millmerrin camp oven festival in September and will, no doubt, perform his poetry there as well. His motto is; “The more you do, the better you get, the better you get, the more you do” Mick says “I have written and memorised many poems based on my time in the bush, on our farm as well as in suburbia. I love the dry humour and gutsy determination of people who work the land. Poems like “mates at the gate” and “The red dog of Ramona Station” come from real life experience. Poems like “Heartbreak Harry from Humpy Doo”, “The 1-30 Rooster” and many more are fun poems that everyone can enjoy.” My shows are often described as comedy shows. We enjoy lots of laughs, joking around and fun. Mick has trophies and Awards which he says are “nice to have but performance experience with real people is the best way to test your skills” He’s “worked the tourist seasons” at Cunnamulla and Carnarvon in tourist parks and had great reviews as well as fabulous audience feedback. He writes commission poems for all sorts of occasions; anniversary love poems or wedding poems for grooms, poetic eulogies, raucous poetic race calls plus he has a solid bank of traditional poems by other writers.
