Please would all poet-owners clean up after their poets.

Please would all poet-owners clean up after their poets.

crumpled paper under the table,

or near the bin;

discarded ideas,

broken pencils,

cast-off character traits;

stained blotters,

a Roget’s Thesaurus,

sweet wrappers by the score;

more paper, in aeroplane form

suffering from maiden-flight

disaster blues;

an apple core,

a copy of Cheese-Makers Monthly,

an upturned drawing-pin

waiting for a new placement;

a marble, coffee stains,

numerous peanuts and one solitary raisin.

and it was only cleaned last year.
