    I immensely enjoyed reading Alex Morritt’s poems in “ Poetry in a time of Pestilence “. He has taken a current, very difficult subject, and presented it factually and compassionately, in poetic form. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

    Nice collection of poems for 2020. 2020 was a brutal year. This collection of poems is written well with wonderful words and alliteration. I like Conundrum the best.

    Definitely 'poetry of the moment', ready to serve up for those most difficult of moments when we really need poetry ! This beautiful collection delves into the wide variety of human emotions expressed by many during this most taxing of times - both economic and in terms of health and wellbeing.
