Key Themes: Mental Health, Schizophrenia, Ideas, Poetry


IDEAS is literally about ideas that come to fruition through the medium of poetry. When people know you have written a book they often ask what it is about whether it consists of poetry or prose. An honest answer to this question in this instance is that the title adequately describes what this book is made up of. Mostly delivered in a modern and melodic pattern of rhyming verse, IDEAS stems from ideas that have occurred to the poet as living in this world drives poetry through him.

About the Author

John Fisher has been helped by Chipmunka over the last few years. Born in London in 1979, he has been through the mental health system having been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. Writing poetry has been a cathartic and therapeutic tool for him alongside his academic studies and involvement in the art world. He is keen to investigate the world through the spectre of poetry and realises that Chipmunka has enabled him to broadcast what would otherwise not see the light of day as time moves on and life on earth evolves.

Book Extract


In the beginning
I was born onto this earth
And so I am now.

I look at nature
In front of me, the picture
That makes me see it.

There is some closure
When the earth swallows me up
And death gives its life.
