Acton, a tanka

parakeet flashing
pigeon perch precarious
windy Acton trees
apocalyptic rumour
in the rumble of a train

teen spirit, a tanka

smells like teen spirit
the impulse and ammonia
lynx and mary jane
heated hormone heavy air
fogs the windows of the bus

Broken Conch


                           between us — 
                           a broken conch
                           empty of waves

trowbridge, a tanka

grey skies drop gruel
shoppers shelter in the shires
drinking weather, spoons
whatever, raining, trowbridge 
pea soup puddled county town

Wobbly Halloween

Don’t come trick or treating down here
We spent all our money on beer
Don’t knock at our door
‘Cos we’re scary and poor
Lend us a tenner for gear

What Does the Fox Say

Creeping slick as silk
Crimson foxes scour the night
Like screaming banshees.

Mom and pups scatter
Like fluffy roaches fleeing
When we peek outside.

Corbyn's Labour

From something old
Comes something new
A different shade 
More red than blue
From Old Labour
Good favour
A following

English Countryside Carnage

English Countryside Carnage

There is a genteel place called Midsomer,
But living there can be a real bummer.
For the inhabitants wait in dread
That they be among the murdered dead.

Short England poem by arthur vaso| Details | |


They say I am insane
They wish to lock me up
Toss the keys in the river

I know I am being watched
They are all fools if they say not
I see the eyes watching me
Do not you?

Concerning Math and How To Say It

The British call it maths,
but the Americans ditch the s
causing much international scorn.
But for our sake, p'raps it'd be best
to keep subjects
only halfway grasped
in the singular form.

Whasson, You

Words from Wiltshire
Hard to define all
You say Mildenhall 
And I say Minal
“Ere, whasson?” 
We say in Wiltshire
“Ere, areet then?” 
“Mine’s a 6Xy beer”
”Catch you laters...” 
(Sorry, when?)

A Knights Tale

Tension rises
Feel the heat beneath the visor
A swing, a duck, a roll to safety
The is not the place to be hasty

Can not faulter
For death awaits who is not wiser
A hit, a plunge, a source of pain
Who is the one that will remain

Short England poem by Peter Dorr| Details | |

Rutland Water

The water, sandy shore, lush hills, swaying trees, the smart lakeside houses and 

boated fishermen in the breeze from the Spit of the largest reservoir in England's 

smallest county completed our beautiful Spring day in the Midlands.

Short England poem by Margaret Bonnette| Details | |


By twilight we shall reach Torchwood
to spy on an insane time lord
let's delete him
then send him
straight to Mt. Erebor
then knock out a lowly hobbit,
kidnap him
and toss him in the Tardis
Once he wakes up
we take a step back
to see what happens next!

Short England poem by Leslie Philibert| Details | |


The beer cans are almost esoteric
Banging down the trash shaft

As boots slide over dog`s pavements;
Tunnels clatter with horseshoes

And piss, an estate with no state;
A simian face against a growler;

I`m sorry for the sorry, skins,
But my stomach turns with Angst.

Kyle the Child Vagrant

Eldest oak in the grove, let me scramble through your earthly bindings
Allow me to traverse your knotted limbs, until the top is conquered 
No other place is greater than here, so warm amongst these scraggly boughs 
I wish only that my roots were as critical as yours, that I had somewhere to belong.

Short England poem by A.O. Taner| Details | |


Chairs lined with stripes, 
green and white,
became ski jump ramps
for feelings, innocent and pure,
taking off from the edge
hoping to defy the gravity of fears. 

Only a lucky few made it,
others turned into tears
landing on the grass of Green Park
as the warm air was getting dark.

Ravelston Hall's Gardens at Night--from The Secret of Ravelston, a novel

The gardens’ magical beauty comes to life 
in the dark of night.  
The large treetops seem to float right up above you 
and merge with the open sky.  
The flowers seem forbidding in the dim light of the night,
but as you look at them for a while, 
they glow to you, 
and are more radiant than at daylight.

Short England poem by nick armbrister jimmy boom semtex| Details | |



Look around at the Queen’s England. 
It’s such a magnificent country with a quaint air of happiness. 
There is a freedom here like nowhere else on earth. 
It’s part of being an English patriot, 
of being in love with an English girl, 
of shedding a tear when a Spitfire roars past.
