National Poetry Day

I’m not much of a poet
though I can write in rhyme —
the crafting of great verse
just bemuses my mind.

Thankfully not all
writers are like me,
which is why today’s the day
of national poetry.

Across England, Scotland, Wales,
and Northern Ireland too,
we’re celebrating poets
and all the work they do.

So stop reading my lines
which lack aplomb and style;
follow @poetrydayuk
to find something worthwhile.

That’s right: it’s National Poetry Day. Even if you’re not in the UK, go hug a poet near you. And a special shout out Gabriel Gadfly, my favourite poet across the pond.
