Mark Mordey, Isle of Wight, England
People tell me its strawberry blonde and my beard is red but my hair used to be a lot redder than this. I spend two and a half years in west Africa and it became sun bleached. I was bullied all my life up to the age of 15, my mother’s husband didn’t believe he was my biological father so he hit me and called me the runt of the litter and cuckoo in the nest. Now I am a performance poet,-alliteration and adjectives by the ginger whinger.
