dVerse Poetics wants us to pick a poet from the many customers of the poets’ pub and write a response, maybe in their style or maybe not. One’s poetic voice after a while becomes recognisable, but write in someone else’s? A tall order. No prizes for guessing this one.
A one trick pony, but what a trick ─
she comes in from time to time
like the lady who once lived in Bath

in impeccable metre
she asks us to treat her
with laughter and fun and a glass
Who’d a’ thought a simple limerick
could be so versatile?
