' ' ' ' FAMOUS POEMS(A thank you poem for Onelia) Poem by Dónall Dempsey


Being a famous poem
in a special bound edition

must be a bit
like being in

BIG BROTHER.

ODE TO A NIGHTINGALE
is out in the garden

sulking.

THE WASTE LAND
has been called to

the Diary Room.

SHALL I COMPARE THEE TO A SUMMER’S DAY
is curled up in the darkened bedroom


with Calamine Lotion
& sunstroke.

Up for eviction
this week is...

OH I WISH I’D LOOKED AFTER MY TEETH!
&
THE PROLOGUE TO
THE CANTERBURY TALES.

ON HIS MISTRESS GOING TO BED
&
WILD NIGHT! WILD NIGHT!

are having it off
between the sheets.


“And the first poem
to leave

the BIG BROTHER house
is..! ”

    Well, the poems also have their privat life, their up and down ;) and where there is a privacy, there is a Big Brother snooping around... Funny idea about this :) (Report) Reply

    Ah yes! The modern age is unkind to poems and poets alike. Reality TV is far more popular with the masses. No longer will the topless towers of Illium be burnt for the sake of a fair maiden, unless she's prepared to bare all to eager oglers of the telly. (Report) Reply
