This is how wars begin

Just because you can’t spell
favourite,
neighbour,
colour and
centimetre;
every poem I have to tag twice;

one for you,
one for the Queen,
one to be wrong
and one to be right;
not rite!

Irony is not a metal
you drop two letters at the most;
put them back and acknowledge
what the rest of the world
already knows.

I must take deep breaths now,
relax and read “The Wife of Bath”;
“Bright Star” will calm my soul,
Spike Milligan will make me laugh.

It is my duty
as an English Poet
to make Shakespeare
even greaterer;
now I have to go
I am going with no apologies
out to the Royal National
THEATRE!

16.10.11 Spot the change. I elevated myself a little too high me thinks.
Thanks to Miss Audrey for making me think.

Irony is not a metal

“THE WHOLE INTERNET IS BROKEN!”
sent shockwaves
around the earth;
ironically (Americans)*
tried to log on
to see if it really was
the end of the world.

* Xenophobes please pick
the country you hate most
from the drop down menu;

* Xylophones please play
happy, dancing skeleton music
like they use in
old cartoons.
