Archetypes..

Hello Poetry Lovers

Well, your poetry detective has come up trumps once again. I’ve discovered the Didactic Poem.

I also thought what a hoot it would be if I wrote one about the archetypes in the Tarot card pack. Until I discovered there were 78 of them!

So, I’ve written about 7 – putting in an archetype of my own – in a didactic form. I really love this form, it gives the poet so much freedom. Anyway do read on; 

Lover

Kiss as many boys as you can

Even when they’ve got bum fluff

And burp the word Bollocks   

Smoker

Smoke as much as you can 

Especially someone else’s fags

Take a puff at every opportunity 

Fool

Get off with every single boy in sight

And tell them you love them  

they’ll pay for you to get in the cinema 

Outlaw

Nick everything that you can

Fags, drink and certainly lipstick

Stealing makes you big and clever 

Jester

Swear as much as possible 

Tell as many crude jokes as you can  

Make the air go completely blue 

 Explorer

Go to every disco you can find 

Do every Funky Chicken routine

Even though you’ll be doing it alone 

Bystander

Always blame someone else 

Then run off to the wings 

And snigger quietly

Wasn’t that a hoot?! Try one yourself and send it in…

Thank you for tuning in, PL’s. We’ll be back real soon…..
