ALL IN THE NAME OF POETRY

By Josie Whitehead

All in the Name of Poetry
All in the Name of Poetry 2 .jpg

Poetry seems a cemetery

     Where people bury grief.

The act of putting it in verse

     Perhaps brings them relief.

 

It seems a good place to enshrine

      The contents of one's heart;

And here replace one's tears with words

      And inner gloom impart.   

 

Readers, enter bravely

    When you join a writing group.

The poetry section, I'm afraid,

     Will make your spirits droop.    

 

Your happy day will melt like snow

     By reading such sad words –

And to entertain oneself this way

     Must surely be absurd!

 

Your cholesterol will rise and rise!

    We'll hear your heartfelt cries -  

But come, turn that computer off

     And wipe your streaming eyes.

 

It’s POETRY, my poor dear friend,

     Designed to tear your heart

But not all poems will make you cry –

     And here’s mine for a start . . . . . .
