Lack Of W;t

And so we begin at the school Taree High,
A story of sibilance, a tale of half-rhyme.
Differing opinions on life, death and wit,
With poor prepositions to help bolster it.
Essays on poets, an uncertain dish;
A rage-blinded shark for each barrel of fish.
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Breezing through Chaucer while Atwood's a slog.
Stoppard's view is unemotional, clear:
Death is simply an actor failing to reappear.
Though there's pessimist poets on life after death;
Who cry from their pens in between grief-wracked breaths.
People like Plath, though she has many fans,
She sounds like a goth who no-one gets, man.
And perhaps that's the end, her view with no lesser...
Or perhaps that just means that I've gone daft with Slessor.

FOLLOW US was established in 1997, and since then we have successfully completed numerous short story and poetry competitions and publications.
We receive an overwhelming positive feedback each year from the teachers, parents and students who have involvement in these competitions and publications, and we will continue to strive to attain this level of excellence with each competition we hold.
