Poems of the Week


by Jerome Betts

“With locals in lockdown, as many as 122 Kashmiri goats
have ventured into Llandudno, North Wales, from nearby
Great Orme…”

A gang of Great Orme-grazing goats
In luxuriant white cashmere coats
Bless Llandudno’s insistence
On correct social distance
As its garden-greens slip down their throats.
