I didn't realise until I was informed by Radio 4 that today is National Poets' Day; National Poetry Day | Forward Arts Foundation . That surprised me as it's only Wednesday. What Jack type poems would you chaps nominate? The only one I could think of was; The boy stood on the burning deck, his feet were covered in blisters. His pants were frilly round the bottom. for they were his sister's. Boom, boom; I thank you.
