This is what John says about his work:
"John Hegley writes his poems about his family and his spectacles. He writes songs about vegetables and paintings. Sometimes his writing is silly and sometimes it is sad. He has a dog puppet which has some poems of its own. It is made of an old sack. It is a Sack Russell Terrier. He has had it since it was a puppet."
Here is one of John's potato poems:
Quick Potato Poem
