The Hospital

'What you in for?' the first man asked
To he in the opposite bed,
'I fell from up some scaffolding, and landed on my head.'

'And what of you?' he asked again
To the next man further down,
'I fell head first in gravy, and my face has all turned brown.'

'And you dear sir?' he then enquired
To he in the bed sat adjacent,
'I'm waiting to see a doctor,' he said
'But for now I'll just have to be patient.'

'And what's wrong with you?' they collectively asked
To the first who then turned off his light,
'Nothing at all! I'm fiddle-like fit!
I just needed a bed for the night.'

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
