Police were shocked to discover a 31 year old man writing in pain yesterday, after having nailed his own ear to a tree.
A Nottingham poet had to be rescued by the fire brigade after nailing his own ear to a tree. Stan ‘za the word’ Smith 31 revealed to The Druid’s Loom the source of inspiration that had prompted him to do it –
“I was ambling freely through the forest one night when I heard the sound of wolves howling
From a carcass of eagle claws that spiked a coyote prowl in swooning pause –
Like an ice wind whistling plummet of fleeing deer streaking across the strewn summit and the jagged frontier –
Night owls in starved repertoire without an instrument to strum,
For a sincere symphony to sooth the lonely scars on the hearts of their beating drum.
I gazed up at the night sky –
Picked a star and wondered what it all meant,
And then as if to tell me it flickered like a signal –
Like a message sent.
A star so silent, so lonely lit,
And I would never touch it,”
But it touched Mr Smith with an epiphany .
He thought “I think it’s probably best to go and nail my ear to that tree over there”.
Excited anti-royalists have braved the inclement weather and set up camp outside the Funeral Directors to the Royal Household, eagerly awaiting news on the imminent passing of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
