National Poetry Day

Reading a bit about this and the BBC thing. It occurs to me that we kinda dropped poetry when recorded music came along and you could have songs on demand from your gramophone/tape deck/CD player/iPod/iPhone. Leonard Cohen was a poet who became a singer/songwriter. In an earlier age, he would have been a poet.

Of modern stuff, I like John Cooper Clarke's stuff, but it's all in the delivery (Not Safe for Work)
