Finger Counting in the Dark

moonProfessor David Morley presents the eighth Poetry Challenge "in which we play, very seriously, with language. This episode is a two for the price of one podcast about writing poems using syllabics and subverting forms of poetry.

Prof Morley challenges you with an exercise in precise patterning and also to write a sequence of Dark Side Limericks, the kind of limericks Darth Vader might write between battles.

Don't be shy about sharing your responses to this poetry challenge here on the blog where others will be able to appreciate them.

  1. Me

    A sickening limerick:

    There was a young man from Ealing
    who paid for his drugs by stealing
    while his mind was afloat
    he stabbed a girl in the throat
    and left her penniless and bleeding
