An Invitation Analysis



Author: poem of Thomas Blackburn Type: poem Views: 12

Sponsored Links



Holding with shaking hands a letter from some

Official – high up he says in the Ministry,

I note that I am invited to Birmingham,

There pedagogues to address for a decent fee.

'We like to meet,' he goes on, 'men eminent

In the field of letters each year,' and that's well put,

Though I find his words not wholly relevant

To this red-eyed fellow whose mouth tastes rank as soot.

No doubt what he's thinking of is poetry

When 'Thomas Blackburn' he writes, and not the fuss

A life makes when it has no symmetry,

Though the term 'a poet' being mainly posthumous,

Since I'm no stiff, is inappropriate.

What I can confirm is the struggle that never lets up

Between the horses of Plato beneath my yoke,

One after Light, and for Hell not giving a rap,

The other only keen on infernal smoke.

And poems...?  From time to time they commemorate

Some particularly dirty battle between these two;

I put the letter down – what's the right note?

'Dear Sir,' I type, 'how nice to speak to you!'
