The Hasslein Principle

This line comes
before this line
and this one after that
sometimes I’ll leave
a gap between

oh heavens!
fancy that!
Some lines I write
go backwards
fit them make to just
and some should
be read quietly
so not to make a fuss
Some lines
I fold quite forcibly
the words within
I bend
and some like
this one following
just belong at the end.


  1. Love this! Very cleverly done. I had an Australian friend who I’ve unfortunately lost touch with who was brilliant at what I called nonsense poems, very much like Spike Milligan, and you remind me of both! :))
