Poetry corner!

Claire Brialey’s poem:

This isn’t prose; perhaps it makes it better.

At least it’s all in email, not a letter.

Discussing podcasts makes you rather meta,

And less is more, so let’s not get courgetter.

Mark Plummer’s clerihew:

Alison Scott’s erudition

Does not enslave her to tradition

But John’s misuse of the word “plethora”

Will be the death of her
