Sorry, folks, this is no joke,
if you're looking for laughs
read Ogden Nash.
(This actually was a word association exercise set by my poetry course tutor.I was surprised how it turned out.I must have been having 'one of those days' - it's not meant to be taken seriously) .
Obvious rural melancholy sold by Turner, Elgar, Blake
pales into insignificance beside the cityscape.
People seen from buses, sat in the cruel, white light
of the late night launderette or the arcade's dangerous door.
The city's desperate niches radiate despair, they mirror
the pastoral fraud, these poison blossoms here.
