Comments about Dave Birss
Poetry Reading Virgin
I’ve never been to a poetry reading before
Are there candles and joss-sticks to garnish the floor?
Or would these combustible hazards, in fact,
Contravene a new European Fire Safety Act?
Do the audience sit cross-legged - all their feet bare?
Or are they in eveningwear there on a chair?
Can I swear? Can I shout? Can I jump all about?
Are there strict rules of etiquette forbidden to flout?
If I go down real well will they shout out for more
Or is there no such thing as a poetry encore?
Can I do a cover version of Hegley or Ayres?
Or is it bad taste to ...
tried to eat her pasta
than her brother who was the masta.
But it ended in disasta
who came lasta
the pasta masta
who ate his pasta fasta.
