Copperhead: A collection of poems


A collection of poems
* Sorry book no longer available
By Scott Martin
Former newspaper van delivery boy Martin achieved justifiable fame when his poem ‘Ploughman’, won The Poem for Scotland prize. This described his father’s contribution to the war effort through the land rather than the bullet.

“I never thought he was the weaker,
In the face of brutality he never bowed down
And the boy, with the horse and the plough, entrusted,
ploughed his seed into the ground.”

In this brilliant collection Martin demonstrates that ‘Ploughman’ was no flash in the pan.  ‘Ken Whut, Mum’ alone is worth the price of this intense intelligent volume.” Brian Hennigan – Caledonia Magazine
