creative writing


I wrote this poem in the first year of uni, when I was desperately trying to reshape the assignment theme ‘generations’ to fit what I wanted to write about: comedy. So, clearly my best work.


Well they called it variety

And what’s that supposed to mean?

Well, it wasn’t very varied, was it?

Not varied?

Not in the slightest! It was all-

All-singing, all-dancing

All male, all white

Alright, alright


Weren’t they funny?

Well, it depended on who you were

And who are we?

The straight man.

The straight man?

We’re the ones who set them up.


Today’s song is Kanye West – Power
