National Poetry Day 2010

Today - Thursday 7 October - is National Poetry Day, here in the UK.
When I was still teaching I would regularly teach poetry lessons and in doing so was inspired to write a few poems of my own. So, as it's National Poetry Day, here's one of them.


A Thousand Hairy Cannibals
by Jonathan Green

A thousand hairy cannibals
Went running through the zoo.
They gobbled up the animals
Then ate each other too.


(c) Jonathan Green, 2010


Which reminds me of a joke.

Two cannibals are sitting in the jungle eating a clown. One turns to the other and says, "Does this taste funny to you?"

These all follow a very similar theme....
Jon, is there something you're not telling us?
What's the real reason you recently moved house?

Are you secretly....
A Banana!?
