Poems submitted for National Poetry Day 2020


Kayhan Ozturk

Boris on tele addressing the nation
Verbose and waffling with his odd intonation
Managing to complicate the base information
Stay home, wash your hands and watch your exhalation!!

With talk of “iron laws of geometrical progression”
Boris hopes to resonate with those in the pub on a session?
Rules aplenty to help and to fix
Like ‘no more than six’ and ‘no households to mix’
Unless more than thirty. In school. In a lesson.

Illogical bemusing it’s all very confusing
Freedoms and liberties people are losing
But please turn your thoughts to the ‘them’ and not ‘I’
Please do your best to try to comply
For whilst you may be fine the less lucky may die.
