The Rik Videos: Hedgeman

In case either of you were wondering about some of the names of these poems ...

Showman = Magician - they seemed like the same thing to me

Hierophant = Pope - I saw no reason to bring religion into the poem

Hedgeman = Hermit - for the feeling of being part of a different world, rather than separate from the world; 'hedgeman' has a good provenance in the rural dialects of East Kent

Fortune = Wheel of Fortune - to keep the title down to a single word

Hangman = The Hanged Man - changes the patient to the agent, I know, but again it's a one word title

Worlds = The World - again, for the multiplicity of the thing

Anyways, now that's out of the way ...
