The word chosen each time is the Telegram Game's current word, so if you join in or subscribe to the telegram game you'll know as soon as it's announced. When you've completed your poem, submit it by posting to a new thread below, and we'll put the best of them together in the next issue.

Port Out, Starboard Home" –
Old habits die hard.
Some people wish they were back in 1900,

Ordered at Harrods, not the shop down the lane,
String quartet playing some classical tune
Haute volée dancing through nights in June.
