Ganderflanking on National Poetry Day


Hear ye, hear ye
you young of Wiltshire.
Lay down your porridge spoons,
your tools, your books.

Swindon, the rightful place
for ganderflanking,
so says the Bishop.

A farmer's rant
blaring Moonraker feathers-
bumpkin magic
on The Crammer.

Make it kaleidoscopic,
colour your lardy cakes,
your gramfypigs
with mysterious sprinkles.

Fill all the little holes
with a small white something,
eat spiritual grockles
to give you the strength

By Hilda Sheehan and Anna-May Laugher

Produced together for BBC Wiltshire on National Poetry Day using the words of listeners in 40 minutes.
