We’re different – because we do, but in general …

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s no baying for Browning
No babble for Brooke
There’s no fetish for Frost
Yet cherish Charlie Cooke!

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 There’s no zeal for Zepheniah
No rush for Rossetti
No craving for cummings
But big up Bonetti!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 There’s no wishing for Wordsworth
No onus on Owen
There’s no chanting for Chaucer
But brilliant was Bowen!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There’s no “bingo! it’s Burns”!
No hotbed for Heaney
There’s no kudos for Kipling
But Leeds rooting for Reaney!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 There’s no touting for Thomas
No penchant for Poe
No swooning for Shakespeare
But jumping for Jo!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 There’s no ardour for Auden
No longing for Larkin
There’s no plinth to Plath
Yet partial to Parkin!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 There’s no clamour for Coleridge
No itching for Ibsen
No yearning for Yeats
But glory be Gibson!

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 There’s no needing Neruda
Not tempted by Tennyson
No vogue for Verlaine
But vaunted is Venison!
