Poetry Corner: Eurovision 2012

Standard poet Angela Brown pens her latest piece on Eurovision as Engelbert Humperdinck gets set to sing for Britain in tonight’s contest...

For those who enjoy music

This is not the time for you.

As the zany and the camp

Head for Azerbaijan’s Baku.

We watch the endless renderings

Upon our televisions.

The Balkan and the Baltic votes,

Yes... it’s time for Eurovision.

So get behind our entry,

Don’t make him look a chump.

Other countries may not like us,

But we’re supporting Hump!
