In this National Poetry week…..
Poetry’s making me worry,
There’s lots I just don’t understand.
Why can’t the ‘moderns’ just say what they mean
in phrases not ever so grand,
but clearly, as if the words that they like,
are the ones that I’ll care about too?
Or must we admire their jumbled refrains
and forget what is simple and true?
There, I’ve said it!
