An Introduction to the House Of Green

An Introduction to the House Of Green

“As this is the House of Green,

please could you keep your poetry

a trifle clean,

for the word of the obscene is best left unseen;

or best left unheard –

if you know what I mean;

perhaps you could, please, rephrase the vulgar tongue

in any fine poem that you have brung-“

‘What The Fibre!’ I hear you cry.

‘You ought to have said ‘brought’,

you… silly guy.’

“And, at that, we shall begin,

with all the curses to the bin.”
