Summary: The cynic's view of what we're trying to do...
Poetry is the new pop?
Like go is the new stop.
Like a mime artist using a prop.
Like the bull tiptoeing past the china shop
Without a strop.
Poetry aint the new pop.
Poetry is the new place?
Like Des OíConnor is a new face.
Like Long John Silver winning a race.
Like a teenager adoring his new brace
Showing his mates.
Poetry aint the new place.
Poetry is the new peace?
Like West is the new East;
A likely political mix up on your TVs.
Like a military dictator hugging trees,
Loving the breeze.
Poetry aint the new peace.
Poetry aint the new this or that.
Itís old hat.
