I'm not a big fan of poetry, more enjoy it from time to time - My tastes vary from the serious to the silly - a sort of whatever takes my fancy sort of thing.
Here are my two favourites. As you will see, poetry doesn't have to send you to sleep.
Less than serious
Trump will, try to find some excuse to delay the upcoming elections if it looks like he's going to lose.
That isn't to suggest he can, just that he'll try (or at least tweet his desire to do so).
What interest might there be in a poem of the week (or even day) thread?
Rather than having specific subjects, I wondered if our resident poets might like to suggest a poem each week or day and post it up. Perhaps including a brief summary of why they like (or dislike) it.
Could be self-written original work or just a favourite 'professional' poem.

So I've recently upgraded to an iPhone 8 because I had my 6s for about 4 years.
I don't see the point in purchasing these new models as it's a waste of money.
All apple do is make the screen better and add a better camera... That's it!
It's daylight robbery!
I could of had the 11 but thought what's the point?
I shall keep my iPhone 8 for 4 years too!

Do you think we are getting closer to a War?
With Iran and US relations being sour. The issues they've got with China, pulling out the Open Skies Treaty, The arms race with Russia. This is a dangerous world.
Can we really rely on our allies?
As a member of NATO there are some countries that would probably run when it came to conflict.
I am guessing it wouldn't be a conventional war but if the US did go to war with China then Russia would back China and vice versa!
This would be terrible!
Sometimes I lay awake at night and seeing these news updates come through it does worry me or is it just me??
