Poet required for immediate start,
to look at the world through an unblemished eye,
then ever so carefully take it apart,
before reassembling without knowing why.
Opinions and reasons will not be required;
you only need show what was not seen before,
in a way that both pleases and leaves one inspired,
and of course, most of all wanting more.
Archaic words like thee thou and pottle,
with Latin and Greek should be left at the door –
it’s us who’ll be reading not Aristotle,
(some writers still use them – I don’t know what for).
Candidates shall write on a relevant theme,
by which I mean relevant to you and I,
and not emulate a Victorian meme,
those who don’t do this need not apply.
