I've read this somewhere, but seeing as they spelled Freddie with an "y" in the same article (like "Freddie"), I don't think it's very reliable.

Anyone knows this?

I think I've seen that article...

But anyway, I'm not sure if Freddie wrote poetry, but I think that writing lyrics counts as poetry, and since writing those lyrics was essentially his job, I doubt he'd be writing extra poetry on his down time. Plus, being a person who hated to read, poetry probably wasn't one of his top priorities.

I can't stand when we have to write poems in class. We had to write a whole freaking book of them.

Freddie once said in an interview "I'm not asked to be a poet" but in writing his lyrics,most in the love ballads,he speaks an universal language that touch our soul very deeply.And for me this is poetry...


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

Yes he did write poetry. And combined it with chords. That`s what they call a "song"


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

In the Champions of the World video, Freddie states in one interview that he actually hates writing lyrics and that he wished somebody else would do it. Therefore, I would say, he did not write poetry.
However, for someone hating to write lyrics he did a damn good job at times.

Freddie was a poet. If you read his lyrics and without the music its sheer poetry and nothing more. and ive heard he hated writeing but i havent seen anyone write a songs so well in my life.
