New and Modern Poet

by Oonah V. Joslin

Henceforth I shall write only chlorinated poems:
Poems that have been passed unfit for human consumption,
Poems that are a bit dodgy,
Poems not fit for a dog.

I will write them on white paper in bleach,
flush them down the loo like the poo they are,
then I will present them to public view
suitably sanitised as undisguised lies.

And they will be lauded and praised as gospel truths,
because this is the way the world works these days.
I will set them to tuneless music.
They shall be hymns of chlorinated praise.
