Simon Icke born 1955 in Little Hulton, Lancashire.
...
Titled, 'A Message in the Rhyme'...the introduction reads: Simon began writing poetry about life and some just for fun.All his poems are written in a simple rhyming style, however many have a cutting edge, that will challenge and provoke the reader to examine his or her own values and beliefs on a number of issues.

Message in the Rhyme by Simon Icke

...
Simon Icke is an unpaid political writer, campaigner and poet.
...
Simon has also written two contrasting war poems: ‘War Has No Winners’, is a very controversial but true observation on the futility of all wars, then his other war poem ‘Lest We Forget’ begs the question of the ultimate sacrifice so many young people made during two world wars; when looking at the state of our politically correct society and the abandonment of traditional values and Christian beliefs and our rich Christian heritage.
...
The only open verse poem Simon has ever written is ‘What Wonder is this?’ ...which is another deep and thought-provoking poem.
Simon’s most recent poems are: ‘I am what I am’ ‘Young Versus Old in Irwell Road’ and ‘Bonfire Night Memories’ both about his childhood memories of bonfire night in Little Hulton,Salford. ‘I am what I am’ is written for all the people who have tried to work him out and failed! But this latest poem might at least give them a clue...
His favorite quotation is by Edmund Burke: ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good  people to do nothing.’ …despite his continuing health problems Simon is certainly not doing nothing; he is doing all that he can to try to make a positive difference in this world, through the power of the written and spoken word. Simon never expects people to agree with what he writes but if his writing provokes a reaction, then it has achieved its objective in adding something to the debate on life and our interesting short journey on this earth.

Message in the Rhyme by Simon Icke

Simon Icke is an unpaid political writer, campaigner and poet. This is his journey in the face of adversity with M.E., Diabetes and Amyotrophy. Please scroll down to read his story or Click Here to view his poetry.

But this latest poem might at least give them a clue...
Simon now lives in the village of Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire, where he has lived for the last twenty-four years with his wife Valerie, they have brought up four very sporting and now adult sons; with one still living at home. With limits now on his mobility due to his continuing health problems he says he rarely ventures far from his home in Aston Clinton and has not taken a holiday in more than three years. He enjoys trying to learn modern languages including French, German & Spanish, although he has never found learning languages easy, in fact the opposite; it is for this reason he enjoys the mental challenge to try and help his short term memory problems and keep his brain active and in his opinion learning foreign languages, is far more enjoyable and useful than ‘doing crosswords’; which he has never enjoyed, despite his love of writing letters and poems and use of words in written and verbal communication.
These days, when he feels well enough Simon enjoys his independent ‘political’ campaigning on a wide variety of national and local issues on a whole range of issues; usually writing from a Christian perspective. Simon was converted to Christianity in 1979 by his older brother Jim’s testimony and seeing him change from ‘Hell’s Angel’ to born again Christian; a few months later Simon’s new faith was tested, when his younger brother Danny was miraculously healed of an inoperable brain tumour; despite being given only days to live. Through the power of prayer and the brothers’ Christian faith; over 32 years later his brother Danny is still alive and well.
...
Despite further health problems in the last three years due to a rare complication of diabetes; known as Amyotrophy, (plus neuropathy nerve damage in both legs and arms, a recent MRI brain scan has also revealed some vascular brain ‘damage’ including signs of early atrophy, these recent findings are currently under further investigation; they could be the source of other physical and cognitive problems Simon has experienced in recent years including short term memory and dexterity problems in both hands). Despite many health problems Simon continues to write when he can; always trying to challenge, provoke or amuse and make a positive difference in peoples’ lives; through his writing. Especially standing up for the poor, the elderly and the down-trodden; often those who are the most vulnerable in our society and have no one to fight for their cause, including; the unborn child, victims of sex-trafficking, ethnic women’s equal rights, domestic energy consumers; especially the poor and the elderly and many more worthy causes that others may leave well alone, as they are often controversial and emotive issues.
Considering he is an unpaid writer, his courage, tenacity and his self-less dedication and motivation has to be admired. Like many controversial political writers and poets; over the last hundred years or more, he thinks his writing will not be fully appreciated until long after he is dead! He hopes that some of his writing will be his lasting legacy. But he also hopes that he is making a positive difference in the present toUKsociety; especially when it comes to fighting for fairness and justice for all.
His favorite quotation is by Edmund Burke: ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good  people to do nothing.’ …despite his continuing health problems Simon is certainly not doing nothing; he is doing all that he can to try to make a positive difference in this world, through the power of the written and spoken word.
