I may be considered a ‘comedy’ poet.
I may be considered a ‘comedy’ poet,
with a quirky style;
because, I am
and I try to write poems
that make people smile,
The day of the giraffe tea party had finally arrived,
‘all’ the giraffes were gathered
in the Village Hall;
the veritably hardened of the drinkers
had gathered in the corner by the largest urns,
and they were necking down hot lapsang souchong by the bucketful
and quoting Robbie Burns.
But, some matters ‘are’ serious;
some issues are contentious,
or hot –
potatoes, for example, are not.
Unless you consider Climate Change a hot potato;
or global warming; insensitive intensive farming;
these issues are alarming.
The truth be told,
I am just one poet
doing what he does,
in his own silly way;
but that doesn’t mean I don’t care
about the serious things.
