Poem of the Week No. 6: The Subway Piranhas

Edwin Morgan (who is still alive, so the poem's well in copyright) wrote this week's poem for the Scottish train system's 'poems on the train' scheme. Unfortunately, it so alarmed the transport executives that they refused to use it. I found it in the notes section of 100 Poems on the Underground and it amused me immensely. We've had a few serious-like poems. Time for one that's fun.

I'm printing this on turquoise-water-blue paper...
