An exhibit of an old website programmed for him, some years ago, that consisted of four-pages detailing some of his interests in life, Landrovers, producing booklets, his poetry, recording rural nature sounds.    

Author: David Merritt (2010)

In the tradition of an old street vagabond, watching the pedestrian flow, talking to enquirers and people that like to chat with him, David Merritt is considered a poet.

Living the ethos of a Charles Dickensian town-and-country Fagin, David Merrit is a somewhat well-known New Zealand poetry legend who travels to towns and cities to sit on public benches for many hours, sometimes days in a row, to peddle his publications.

He sometimes needs to arrange impromptu local sleeping arrangements, so he can spend a few days in a particular town or city, observe real-life pedestrian society, and exhibit his poetry.


David has written hundreds of poems, many of which he has self-published in the form of do-it-yourself booklets. His works are usually made of recycled book cover materials and he hand prints his writings on paper using a stamp ink pad, an old alphabet block letter print set, a stapler and paper-glue sticks.

He had been a University lecturer were he taught English. He has been publishing various works, inclunding the NZ Internet Guide for Dummies.

He likes to drive his Landrover around New Zealand. He also likes to park up his Landrover, wherever, be it obviously scenic or merely potentially interesting, to enjoy the view, or peruse the wireless waves on his laptop.


David lives on a farm in Mangamahu, where he likes to grow organic food, and work on his next series of poems, store his booty, and repair old Landrovers.

His jewish background has inspired poetry writings which he published, containing subject matters like, predating on Germans in order to steal of them, and the importance of poor Jewish people to rise to the ranks of the middle class.

That apart, he has written some nice material also, but many of his poems contain material that is somewhat controversial, corrosive, subversive, and sometimes also containing reflections on his own condition in life, and observations of common day-to-day habits of people in the culture of this day and age.

He can be a nice person, and he has provided his personal friendly presence throughout cities of New Zealand to hundreds of people that have interacted with him over the past 25-years.
