Uninspired Poetry 10: The Film Edition - part 2

Bend It Like Beckham
Bend it like Beckham!
Mum thinks she's a lesbian.

Turns out she isn't.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Some enchanted coins.
Some enchanted skeletons.
Where has the rum gone?

Young girl tells a lie.
Keira wears fancy dresses.
Tube floods and she dies.

This is an old flash fiction piece that I wrote and entered into a competition, which I completely forgot about until having a clear out of my word documents last night.


Her bare feet brush the patchwork of grass and soil beneath her: a slender figure swaying in the breeze, a dark shadow against the fiery orange of the setting sky. Later they will hear the angst riddled guitars that screech through her headphones and blame these unknown beings for taking her too soon.  Much too late, they will uncover the scars that her body bares while He sheds crocodile tears beside her grave.

Uninspired Poetry 9: The Film Edition

The Mummy

Corny one-liners.

Evil man snaked in the face.

Flesh eating beetles.

Scream 4

Webcam murderers.
Courtney Cox’s pillow face.

Dim bints run in heels.

Mean Girls

Oh my God; so fetch!
The limit does not exist.

Bitch hit by a bus.

Inglorious Bastards
"I want me some scalps."
Brad Pitt does a bad accent.
Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein! Nein!

Uninspired Poetry 8

I’m poor
at twenty-five.
Washing my hair over
the kitchen-sink with DIY fringe.

Uninspired Poetry 7

The days canter by.
now that I’m older.
