Shit! the Board are after me


The buggars are on my tail, they are

They think my verse is low-gear

It's not nuff arty-farty like

It's not nuff Willy Shakespeare


Art thou listening oh Great Board?

(Yes you up in the sky)

Willy Shakespeare wrote for Globe

That paper's long gone by


You need to make an effort Board

Come off your great high tree

Adjust, bend rules and delve into

My offbeat poetry


I'm waiting on a Board response

(Those ones up in the sky)

You think they will come back to me?

And deign me a reply?


Regardless what the Board may say

Their 'pinion is no loss

I'll write the way I want to

Don't care, don't give a toss

One tends to write best on what one is passionate about. I like black humour but not all readers relate to it. Well-written black humour shows a clever mind.....

Think black when you start to type......

Yep, that's the only way to write, in whatever style works for you. I wish I could do more humourous stuff, face to face I'm a funny guy, it's just that:
A) My sense of humour is extremely dark most of the time,
And B) It never seems to appear when I start typing.
Probably for the best in my case, as I say I do have a very dark sense of humour.
