The Poetry Place

New term, new start

Tuesday, 3 September 2013 10:27:56

Creative juices not quite flowing yet?  Don't worry, it's the same here. Just to show I haven't been entirely idle, here's a parody I wrote for another purpose entirely but which you might enjoy.

Had I my aunt's embroidered clothes,

Enwrought with golden and silver thread,

The blue and the glitter and the dark cloths

Of night-clubs and disco-lights and the half-light,

I would wear the clothes on our street!

But I, being poor, have only my denims;

I have spread my denims under your feet;

Tread softly, because you tread on my jeans.
