Lawrence Ferlinghetti – Two Scavengers in a Truck with Me

I didn’t realise this was still out there, and came across last night, checking I admit.

The poem is no longer studied for GCSE here. Produced by Devon Curriculum Services, I enjoyed making this and another, the second about the poem What Were They Like? by Denise Levertov, performed with some of my students reading as well. Great days.

If I made this one again my commentary would be far less ‘reasonable’. Ferlinghetti was angry, not simply observational. I should have made much more about his disdain. But there you go – pleased with my selection of Janis Joplin for the soundtrack!
