A poem from MADS' lockdown miscellany book, "It Could Be Verse!" has been featured in the December 5th 2021 edition of The Sunday Mirror. The poem, New Normal Neighbours was written by Simon Gregson, best known for his portrayal of Steve McDonald in the long-running ITV soap opera Coronation Street since 1989, and more recently for being a late entrant on the 2021 series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. Simon's poem starts off MADS' wonderful collection of original writing and is reproduced in the article, which reveals his love of poetry, amongst other things (see picture).
