Flatpack Poetry

Here's a new concept that should be a big seller - flatpack poetry that the reader can assemble and customise to suit his/her own outlook on life or just their mood at a particular time. Check out the example below.

Carpe Diem

From starting gun
To closing bell
Elapsed so soon
Employ it well

Now try customising your own last line. e.g. Traditionalist RCs and depressives might substitute "Endure" for Employ, while hedonists might change the entire last line to "Enjoy your spell" or even "Party like Hell!"

So Seamus Heaney
Amend your craft
At flatpack poems
Prepare to graft
