No need to get huffy,
huffy and puffy
about Poet Laureate
Carol Ann Duffy.


Just 'cos she's brilliant,
just 'cos she's great,
these are not good reasons
to insult and hate.


She gets all the credit,
she gets all the praise,
she wins many prizes
for her gift to amaze.


She's just won another,
the Pen Pinter Prize,
and I've won nothing
but I refuse to despise.



No need to get huffy,
huffy and puffy
about Poet Laureate
Carol Ann Duffy,
but in private I'll chunter
and like my teachers would scribble,
"Joe must try harder,
and not be slave to the quibble."
