Verse.org contains short items of verse, sporadically produced when world events demand that they be commemorated in such fashion.
Think of this site as the anti-laureate.
There’s no poetry in the verse here.
It’s all short, pithy – that’s right I did say pithy – and always composed of fewer than 147 characters.
Being so eminently tweetable, Verse.org.uk curtseys to the mores of the present while tipping its cap to masters of the past – most notably Edmund Clerihew Bentley.
Verse’s ambitious plans for the future include winking cheekily at world events while waving a hanky at the everyday.
Further down the line we might polish the shoes of the deserving while dewaxing the ears of the brave but hey – one step at a time, eh?
