This is a new kind of poem: a cross between a haiku and a limerick. Think too hard about each one and you may wish you hadn’t. Pass merrily over them and you might have a good laugh or feel slightly sick. Some are specific to today’s interesting times. Others delve into eternal unpleasantness. Or seek to answer the unanswerable. Menacing, fun, obscure or chilling – read them in any order. It’s your choice. Try your hand at writing one and you might find it difficult without a lifetime addiction to doggerel verse.
