Finally, here is my March 2017 CV in the form of a poem.
Cheers!
Hurrah! Hurrah! Three cheers! Hooray!
Wednesday is World Poetry Day.
And as a gimmick, if you’ve got time,
I’d like to sell my wares in rhyme.
(That said, if you’d prefer to skip this verse,
Check out my profile: You could do worse).

Freelance writing. That’s what I do.
Magazine features, some PR too.
I’ve written for DVD Monthly and Metro,
Radio Times, Geeky Monkey, Yours Retro.
I have over ten years’ experience: is that enough?
And look: most people have liked my stuff.

Readers, here’s the bottom line:
My work is good and always on time,
Wherever you want it straight or funny,
I’ll always deliver on the money.
I’m fully trained in Media Law,
Reviews, press releases, speeches and more.

So if you hate my poetry: fine!
I don’t write like this most of the time,
But if you need a writer, have no fear:
My writing is efficient, accurate and clear.
So thanks for taking the time to read all this,
And now look at my profile please. Thanks! Chris
