So on the 27th September 2011 I’m providing my “poetry factory” for Love Arts Leeds. I needed to get a bit of practice in to write a poem very quickly so in about 5 minutes I came up with the poem below. To provide a bit of context both my mum and her friend are English teachers and have a similar level of religious observance (Jewish and Muslim respectively).
The 2 R’s
Roma and Razia are BFF’s
Friends of the highest order.
Not only do they work together,
But they religiously perspire.
Sweating out philosophical quandaries
Their differences never overshadow
The fact that for each other
They are kind, helpful and reliable.
If you would like to have the “poetry factory”, music or any other writing for your event or to commission any work please get in touch.
