Poems of the Week


by Nora Jay

“The university town of Lund in Sweden is to dump a tonne of chicken manure in its central park in a bid to deter up to 30,000 residents from gathering there for traditional celebrations to mark Walpurgis Night on Thursday.”
The Guardian

In scholarly Lund, there’s a whiff in the air
Of danger (and more, to be sure):
Are you up for spooks and a medical scare,
Or are you too chickenmanure?
