Recently our FT has been asked to join a team of poets submitting to The Spectator magazine. The prompt was to imagine a poet has been asked to provide advertising copy; of course we were not published, but we had a good time :>)


A shuttlecock with feathers

A shuttlecock with feathers—
The Yonex AS-10—
For sweetest games of badminton—
You’ll never want—to end—

And gayest—on the Grass—is struck—
And rough must be the man—
That could destroy the little ’Cock
That flies as best it can—

I’ve flown it over hard cement—
And on the oddest Wood—
And—even—in the farthest ’hood,
It is extremely good.
