Band’s Got the Runs

NaPoWriMo Day 3:- we challenge you to try this out yourself by writing a list poem in which all the items are made-up names. If band names don’t inspire, how about a list of titles for romantic novels? Or new television cop dramas? They can be as over-the-top as you like, because that’s (at least) half the fun. 

Which would ya like ta watch? Take ya pick, the music’s thick and thirsty fer ya ear’oles. Make it quick. Here ups the bill tonight.

7pm sharp. Tickets at the Door


Write a Note, Mate     always late, followed by

all the Greedy Spiders what glides like

a wet bunch of Beer-Buzz Soddoffs    what  lay about like

Roses in the Kitchen Cupboard   drunk like

Holey Shitty Water  dried on dark on

A Man A Lone dances to his own in

OXO Circles to the tune of

In The Skinny Blue through a true

Non-Nomadic Crowd toxic with Metal Bubbles

and no Damn Women Aloud!

Emergency Exiters to the left, Fire Hosers to the right

Now, let’s get this DigShin started, eh!
