Comments about Denys E. W. Jones
The Worst Poem Ever Written
The worst poem ever written.
Well, what did you expect?
Strikes no chords, hits no buttons,
Just leaves you all perplexed.
Speaks not of Life, Death, Hope or Hate,
Or hearts by Love’s darts smitten.
You surely will not like its shape,
Its form, its structure, rhythm.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
Get only a brief mention.
Where is the focus, centre?
What captures our attention?
No similes, no imagery,
No metaphors, no meat.
No juicy, tasty turns of phrase
In which to sink one’s teeth.
A dud, a flop, complete dead ...
The Race Against Time
I threw a gauntlet down to Time,
And challenged him to run
A mile or two alongside me,
And then we’d see who’d won.
I did not miss the starting-gun,
I flew out of the block,
Oblivious to trickling sands,
Or ticking of the clock.
