Rattlin’ Dogtags

Reception without receipt.


Parents return the kids’ minds.

Taken back: faulty,

Unused faculties,

Likely sentenced mental,

Stupid, sentimental.


Angle to deference, we’re

Drawing posters against

[Insert cultural reference here].


Take the lines,

And verse the words of a curse.

About DickensianJack

Born in Wolverhampton in November '93, moved to Huddersfield in September 2012. Studying at the University of Huddersfield. In love with the town - simple as that. As for the blog itself, I've been doing bits and pieces of writing (with varying quality) for a few years. A friend suggested I start a blog to share my work. Most of the stuff on here is poems, but there's other work interspersed on the page. Feel free to leave any comments on my work. Twitter: @DickensianJack (Jack Dickens) Facebook: www.facebook.com/dickensianjack Cheers, enjoy.
