Five Poets to Avoid at Parties


“Well of course you realise that
I only write for therapy;
I happen to have brought along
a little something of my own.”


“I’m afraid I really cannot cope
with Wendy Cope. Ha Ha.
“But haven’t I seen you at another do,
with another woman?”


“I simply do not care what others say.
McGonagall was truly great.”
“But of course you’re Scottish,
I’m sure you understand.”


“I write of love and of the thing love is,
and more of what I think love is.”
“And of me thinking of what I think love is,
“Or indeed, of what love is like.”


“Tell me, what do you do
when you’re not writing Poetry?
For myself, I like to walk in graveyards.
Care to come along?”
