This is the 200th post on this blog. To commemorate this momentous occasion, I will share with you all a poem I wrote a few months ago now about my last year at university… enjoy :)

New Sunrise

Near a cathedral there once was a court

Where Adam stole furniture and never was caught

A chav called Lauren never ate a banana

And a Portuguese girl they called Mariana

You’d never see Chris cus he’s always out

And Sophie, the cleanest one without doubt

That just leaves Charles, you’d meet people meaner

Oh, that reminds me, there’s also the cleaner!


Once the year had begun, good times were ahead

There were days in the snow, and many in bed

Club nights, comedy nights, film nights and more

And nights doing nothing weren’t even a bore!

But Charles wasn’t drinking as much as he could,

And Soph took more pictures than she probably should.

Lauren certainly knew how to make a horse wriggle,

And Mariana was there to make them all giggle.


But with Mariana gone, they began to believe

That sooner or later they’d all have to leave

And before you knew it the days were all gone

And all who was left was Soph, Joy & Don

Then all the rooms emptied, with no-one about

There was no-one to smile, laugh, tickle or shout

The sun set on court, leaving dark cloudy skies

And the six went in search of a new sunrise…
