Poetry’s bad for you

by robertmcnicol

So, having read this article, I’m wondering just whether keeping this blog was actually such a good idea. Oh, god – I’ve just remembered that I reference Shelley with my motto! Well at least I’ve never written proper, honest-to-goodness, full-blown verse. For which you should be truly thankful. What’s that – you don’t believe me? Pah! Take this:

A healthy young man from Dubai

Took up poetry – no-one knows why.

His rhyming was awful,

His syntax unlawful.

Thankfully he’ll most likely die.

Yeah. Sorry about that. I’m tired and haven’t had any licorice today.
