August Poetry Competition – and the winner is…..
A fine turn out from the usual suspects plus a few.
A lightning fast entry from Janus 1 in the style of that music hall favorite “Albert and the Lion”
Followed by modern pieces by Araminta
Then a sparse and thoughtful piece by Janus 2.
Then on the final day, two Caledonian entries.
Another “Albert” from John Mackie
And with barely hours to spare a visit to France by The Royalist
All really good reads, clearly a lot of well remembered holiday times and subsequently awfully tough to choose just one winner. However, I do like my pomes to rhyme so let’s start with focusing on the two “Alberts “ and “When in France”. I really also do like “Albert” so lets limit ourselves to those two entries.
Both rocked along and were perfectly constructed and rhymed, but I will award the prize to Janus 1 and “Holiday Pome” winner by the barest nose of the ‘orses ‘ead ‘andle.
For the avoidance of doubt the decision was not determined by the double (bash)ing of Mr. Mackie.
A good one Janus, I liked it very well.
