Dominic Hodgkinson


Sauron, Dark Lord of Mordor, Stole My Beer

What should you do if your title
By some curious chance
Should seem at first glance
More vigorous, vibrant and vital

Than the rest of whatever you wrote,
Which, compared to your title’s
Mere piffle, a trifle,
An appended, superfluous note?

Dominic Hodgkinson is a Classics teacher who lives in England. He loves rhythm and rhyme and doesn’t understand why anyone would wish to cut these out of their life. He is also quite partial to wit (when he can manage or understand it).
