National Poetry Day

 

It’s our National Poetry Day

When young poets expect to make hay

And whilst good ones may shine

Others fade and decline

Being far from enthused by the pay.

 

It’s our National Poetry Day

When our efforts are put on display

‘Til the critics define

Every ill-conceived line

As the proof that we’re losing our way.

 

It’s our National Poetry Day

But let’s not get too carried away

For in twenty-four hours

It will shed its brief powers

And the ‘footie’ will once more hold sway.
