Diane Hine (25 July 1956)
Lingo Banal 1
If I didn’t have something to write
I wouldn’t write a poem to say
I don’t have anything to write though
I might write a poem to say that
I wouldn’t write such a poem.
Lingo Banal 2 (an offal dectina refrain)
Giblets or ears
Of corn. The stringy
Bits get stuck in my teeth.
Ah….coffee would be nice. Sit
Next to me on the chintz settee
And we’ll dine on choc-o-late dipped mints.
Love………I shan’t nibble your giblets or ears.
