Entry - MAG Poetry Prize 2010

My blog is very popular

by Joe Shier

My blog is very popular
It has millions of readers
But they don’t leave comments
Because they wouldn’t change a thing

They don’t need to subscribe
Because they leave it up
On their screens all day long
Having realised it renders
All other websites redundant

And they don’t show up on the stats
Because it attracts mainly
Tech-savvy types who make
Their IP addresses invisible
In order to prevent identity theft

Judges' comments on this poem


This is funny - a welcome change from all the serious stuff and a good mockery of navel-gazing.
