Is Roger Green the same as Roger Lancelyn Green who edited the Diaries of Lewis Carroll? That might explain a nonsense verse parody of Suzanne.

I was thinking he must've been the one who put out the album with the front cover having lots of blue sky and banana[s?] floating in the air.

I see on the Pages there is a piece entitled "Hydra and The Bananas of Leonard Cohen" which is about Roger Green an English poet living on Hydra.

The thing is Bobo he could be Shakespeare but you have wittered on about him so much you have put me off. :?

Paula, why waste the chance of enlightenment just because I may have been over-enthusiastical. My life has changed and grown like a yellowed banana thanks to Sir Roger. Yours could as well if you are not too old or closing!
