Harvey's strawberry dream...










Matt Harvey, Wimbledon poet for this year's championship, has released one of his new creations. He 'inflicted' 'Thwok!', starting with the unusual lines 'bounce bounce bounce bounce/ thwackety wackety zingety ping/ hittety backety pingety zang/ wack, thwok, thwack, pok', on some of the early visitors to Henman Hill this morning, relying on their open champagne to ensure a good reception. Yet despite 'Thwok!' perhaps appearing a little desperate for subject matter, Harvey has plenty else to occupy his lines, including such things as 'the umpires, the ball boys and girls, the Boston ivy, the queues....strawberries..and Cliff Richard'. All of Matt Harvey's Wimbledon works, are to be found on the Wimblewords blog daily.
