The poet has been performing his own style of punk poetry in the squats, pubs and clubs of west London since 1989, self-publishing several collections of rants, poems, songs and short stories in the process. These two poems are taken from his post-punk dystopian narrative, "The Life and Thoughts of Chairperson Craig".

Im not into what day it is or knowing the proper time
Im not into battery farming or getting wet in acid rain
Im not into brain washing or prime time TV
Im not into political control or being told what I should be
Im not into the correct way of thinking or a mechanical universe
Im not into transhumanism or geneticly engineered birth
Im not into being told Im wrong when I know Im right
to live the way I want too and stand up for all my rights
I am just a human being living out his life
I was born in the early morn here on planet Earth
I just want a life time while Im in this universe
I dont want no money man telling me what Im worth
I just want the sun and stars to guide me day and night
I just want to see the world at peace before its time for me to die
