‘A chair of beauty is a joy forever’. ( a bit of Keats)
Poetry is a dangerous passtime.
To wield words like a sword.
To confront your opp0nent.
To select the right weapon.
Is this what is happening at Oxford and among those who have studied at Oxford? What do the swordsmen look at? It is all about the next Poet at Oxford University. Famous poets have taken the chair. One of the poeple who want to sit on the chair is the Nigerian poet Wole Soyinka and he is supported by no less then 149 Oxford graduates who are all allowed to vote.
Now it starts to look worse than the Eurovison Song Contest.
