Although Alport Syndrome is the second most common form of inherited kidney disease worldwide,very few people have heard of it, Verses for Alport seeks to raise awareness of it. Alport Syndrome can also cause deafness and eye abnormalities.

I met a signpost in an empty plain

I met a signpost in an empty plain

And asked it for the way to Spain

It said, ‘Although I know the way

‘To Buxton and Layer de la Haye

‘To Glasgow and to Colne Engaine

‘I do not know the way to Spain.’

It whipped a satnav from its pocket,

Plugged into a nearby socket,

And said, ‘According to this screen

‘You get to Spain via Parson’s Green.

‘You find a wardrobe in a shop

‘Unlock the doors, and in you hop.

Then you will appear to vanish.

‘The next day you’ll be speaking Spanish.’

Edward Alport/England
