I'm Anna, I'm 20, live in Oxford and I just quite like writing the odd poem. I blog more of my poems here too:


Geeks’ United We’re a groovy bunch Always raving till like half 9 at night With tres hip glasses we dance to impress Showing the world that we’re well sick... and bright I’m gonna start listening to that ‘emu’ music Start hangin’ with my ‘housies, cos thats how a roll Get down with the kids and ‘throw some shapes’ Yo, yo, yo and indeed again yo! We meet twice a week in the library So that we can understand What’s ‘in with it’, cool hip and happenin’ What’s got too much rock for one hand! But as tragically hip and street as we are And you have to admit that that’s true There are still moments when try as we might Some of our more ‘whack’ habits show through I edit Wikipedia too! High Five! I saw you at chess club High Five! We’ve got matching socks High Five! We’re geeks who high five High Five! But as much as we try to deny it It’s still all a really big act We’ve got looser written through us like Blackpool rock Yes – we’re Geeks United: Fact Innit!

Hi Anna, Saw you at Guitar and Verse the other night. What a random / fresh / confident / stumbling / brilliant spot you did. You were just yourself and that was more than enough. A breath of fresh air. more please. Win x

P.S. I will have to look up this poem a day thing, yes , sounds scary

Just had a thought. This poem is older than you! So maybe she should be looking out for you and not as I said previously. Although she spent most of her years locked alone and neglected in a drawer (what a terrible parent I was)so maybe you are more worldly wise than she.

Thanks you very much on behalf of my poem Be! She is very glad you liked her and as she's just had her 21st birthday she is now leaving me and making her own way in the world. So please visit her and be a good friend - I'm depending on you!

Yay you've got Geeks United on here, I'm well gonna have a read of that when I'm missing you now you're at Oxford. Have a good time and take their poetry scene by storm like you have 'round Manchester.
