My Poetry Voice

I have

a poetry voice,

I have to use it

when reciting poetry,

I have no choice

in the matter.

It’s a cross betwixt

posh and received pronunciation;

not that I am at all posh,

or have ever been well received.

When I am

not

doing poetry,

you would hardly notice me;

but, when my poetry voice is on…

you have to pretend

not

to notice.

There is no cure

but one;

I shall give up my poetry voice

when my poeting days are done.
