A BAND OF COMEDY POETS

LONG LIVE THE COMEDY POETRY COLLECTIVE

Comedy Poetry lasted only a short while

Until people realised it wasn't their style

Joining a collective demanded some reins

Unlimited posting effecting our brains.

A collective it brings all shades of colour

To the genre of verse a touch of valour

It does not negate individual plight

Indeed it's a funnel straight to your site.

A troupe of poets, like a musical band

Sum of strengths, not solo and bland

A good drummer's better, understand

When other group members are lending a hand.

Imagine a poem as a two minute song

Extremely tuneful to sing along

Two weeks later, got a bit stale

New air needed to inhale.

It does not matter how good you are

You can only go so far

Poetry we make is good for a laugh

To give it more status is just being daft.

In a selfish mood but not being soft

Better in collective than plain garry croft

Truth is I got one string to my bow

Others are needed, then there's a show.
