Poor Poet's Scroll

"No sword
Of wrath her right arm whirl'd, [6]
But one poor poet's scroll, and with 'his' word
She shook the world." - Tennyson, 'The Poet'

I may not shake the world, but I do believe in the power of words.


7. Stereotype

The teenage boy gets on the bus,

already a woman is making a fuss,

“Look at that chav sitting next to me.

Couldn’t he move?” it comes as a plea.

“Teenagers today, they drive me insane,

what they need is a whack of the cane,

A good ‘ol smack will set them to right,

they’d feel less need to break into fights.

All of them smoke, all of them drink,

then they throw up in the kitchen sink.”

The teenager bristled, he was getting quite mad.

“You know Mrs Moan, we’re not all that bad.

Some of us smoke, some of us drink,

some throw up in the kitchen sink.

It’s our own way of living, our own lives we make,

so please moany miss, give us a break.

We are all humans didn’t you know                                   

              Please moany miss, don’t treat us so.
