    Andrew Mayers, or Mr Mayers, the King of 34 Baker Street, who submitted this poem, is my favourite all-time English teacher. A legend. Like him, this is dark and mysterious but leaves you wanting more. (Report)Reply

    I read this poem about 18 years ago when I was at school and thought it was great not boring as I expected poetry to be. I've just found it now and realised that it's still great! (Report)Reply
