My concerns are for those disempowered in the work place, especially those who work in the ‘Care sector’. I refer to Care Assistants who are unable to report abuse and neglect in ‘Care Homes’ (For fear of losing their job) and the residents of residential/nursing homes who suffer neglect. Please see ‘The British underclass‘ article on my blog.

My name is Chris Pitts
I’m from Nayland in Suffolk.

My Poems

I’m into what I call; “Minimalist” Poetry. It is an attempt to explain/present poetry in the shortest few words. Most of my stuff involving the written word will fall into this category.

Most of the poems and posts on this site are my own work, but occasionally I post something I’ve read which I think you will like with the author’s name below it.  So if there is no attribution – it’s mine.

My Music

For a long time now I have also been writing and performing songs.

Chris regrets that he is no longer able to perform live, his guitar abilities are seriously hampered by osteo arthritis in his hands, thankfully with the help of other musicians he is still making CDs of original material

Here’s a few of samples for you.
