Book review – The Further Selected Poems of K Morris (Spoiler Free)

I was pleased to receive this review of my Further Selected Poems.

  • Title: The Further Selected Poems of K Morris

And leave behind the path
Along which all must pass,
To a place where bones
Find their final home,
Under a cold stone.

To dance around the Maypole.
But my girl she refuses to play!”

When a young lady named Rose
Said, “as for me, anything goes!”.
I said, “that’s great!”,
Then, me and Kate
Tweaked that big nose of Rose!
