Worst Poem Ever?

Posted on Updated on

Hi peeps,

I noticed that our so-called ‘poet laureate’ – Gillian Clarke has produced a poem to mark the death of former South African leader Nelson Mandela this week.  I read the poem and thought ‘what a load of shit’.  No real feeling, no heartfelt emotion, no political comment, not even a dig at child murderer Winnie!  Very boring.

So your challenge this month is to find a worse poem written by a Welsh Academi (Literature Wales) sponsored ‘writer’.  Come on, don’t be shy, there must be thousands of them out there lurking, unread in the storerooms of the LW office or gathering dust on shelves in various attractions up and down the land.

If you can think of any please post the name of the poem and poet – might be a laugh!

    Anything by Nigel Jenkins? He has to be up there with the very worst of them Lit Wales troughers. His haiku are a joke. Truly awful.

      Anything by Zoe Skoulding? She is about as terrible as a pretend poet can be.

    Personally, I think ‘golden balls’ public school boy Owen Sheers is the worst writer I’ve ever had the misfortune to encounter.
