The Bohemian Poet

A collection of personal poems and ideas forged through madness and creativity!

Good Evening Bohemians… (I think that’s what we’ll call Y’all for now)

So I thought I’d do a sort of “Get-To-Know Me” blog post tonight. Something that’s a little lighter and more fun than the usual deep and sappy poetry.

I’m going to answer a list of questions that I found online and hopefully, this will make you feel more part of my bohemian world. Eish!

So here we go…

  1. Are you named after anyone? – No, although I was named Douglas due to my Scottish background on my maternal grandfather’s side and my second name, Anthony is my paternal grandfather’s first name. So perhaps! (I also have a Zulu name…) 
  2. When was the last time you cried? – Probably when I was popping a pimple or tweezing my minor unibrow. About two weeks ago? 
  3. Do you have kids? -Wut!? Although, I’m going to be an uncle in a few weeks time. 
  4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? – Yeah! My dark sense of humour is enough to make anyone flip. 
  5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? – Refer to question 4.
  6. What’s the first thing you notice about people? – Personality and behaviour. And yo attitude!  
  7. What is your eye colour? – Blue/Grey/Green
  8. Scary movie or happy endings? – Happy endings, because that numbs reality and responsibility. But honestly, I love the adrenaline kick from a scary movie. 
  9. Favourite smells? – Vanillery flavoured stuff… I like the Radox Rice Milk & Hyssop shower gel, and Petrichor is just an all time favourite! Shops like Typo and Wakaberry also have a captivating aroma. 
  10. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? – Probably some weird ass game farm out in Limpopo…? 
  11. Do you have any special talents? – Me sing, write and play the piano. I also draw, willingly or not… that is the question! 
  12. Where were you born? – Johannesburg 
  13. What are your hobbies? – Refer to question 11. 
  14. Do you have any pets? – Yes, I have two dogs. They’re a cross between Jack Russel and Pug. 
  15. Do you have any siblings? – Many! I have a sister, a stepbrother and two (almost three, by next year) half brothers, and a brother-in-law. 
  16. What do you want to be when you grow up? – A singer-songwriter. 
  17. Who was your first best friend? – He was a boy by the name of Jared Nicol. We lived in Welkom together and went to the same preschool. We both liked Milk Tart very much.
  18. How tall are you? – I’m not measuring now… something like 170cm… 5’6?
  19. Funniest moment throughout School? –  School isn’t funny. It’s traumatizing.
  20. How many countries have you visited? – I’ve only ever visited around my own country. If anyone would like to change that and make my dreams come true, you can contact me at
  21. What was your favourite/worst subject in High School? -My worst is Maths lit. Yes, I take lit. And my favourite would have to be Visual Arts.
  22. What is your Favorite drink? Animal? Perfume? – I like the Hug In A Mug’s Roasted Marshmallow flavour… Animal would have to be a Horse or Zebra, and I’m not a perfumy person. 
  23. What would you (or have you) name your children? – Florence River, maybe add Nomvula with it because I love and admire the Zulu culture. 
  24. What Sports do you play/Have you played? -Next joke…
  25. Who are some of your favourite YouTubers? – I don’t really watch YouTubers but rather music videos, although one of my friends, Mouse Erlank has a YouTube Channel and Y’all should definitely check her out
  26. How many Girlfriends/Boyfriends have you had? – I’ve had many fake girlfriends in primary school…(Who can relate?) But I’ve never really had a boyfriend instead I’ve had like 2 568 348 unsuccessful flings. 
  27. Favourite memory from childhood? – Coming back from Wimpy with my dad and my sister when I was three-years-old. It was dark by the time we got home. When we were at Wimpy my sister and I got helium balloons. Before we went inside when we got home, my dad sat me on his shoulders and we let the balloons go above us, into the stars. 
  28. How would you describe your fashion sense? -I would like to dress nicely. But I don’t. I’m lazy and poor. So it’s jeans and a T-shirt or shorts and flip-flops. But once I establish my career, that is definitely something I’ll work on.
  29. What phone do you have? (iOS v Android?) – iPhone.
  30. Tell us one of your bad habits! –I’m lazy and I procrastinate… Stay in my pyjamas all day… Use a heck load of mobile data. Criticize the peasants in my school. 

Thank you for reading these totally useless facts about me. Shoutout to all my stalkers who now have bait, I love you too. I have already got 1 request for the capturing emotions project, where I write a poem about difficult emotions of life. Please don’t forget to send me your concepts! That’s all from my side…

Yours in Madness.
