A very short post today (day 5 in the blog everyday on bookstains challenge) and I make no apology for featuring another John Cooper Clarke poem. He is one of my favorite poets and has featured in a few posts of mine.
This one is called ‘I don’t want to go to Burnley’ and the poet very cleverly rhymes Northern towns – sometimes with the most incongruous words (yes I’m talking to you Elsa Lanchaster!) I went to Burnley for the first time the other week – and it was great by the way! I certainly don’t think the poet meant any offence to the towns mentioned (at least I think he didn’t 😀 )
