Here's another Pantoum - It is Called Exterminate

A recent poetry evening, organised by Lenny Smith, a 37 year old Dalek was said to be a complete disaster.

Smith, a peace loving Dalek, completely at odds with his comrades blamed a lack of love for Poetry amongst his friends for the show's disappointing turn-out.

As well as his monotonic speech pattern, limited poetic imagination, and subject matter, Smith was also scuppered by the stairs at the front of the stage.

An open mike event later in the evening saw Chewbacca reading of his unrequited love for Luke Skywalker, and Yoda reading out a Haiku which began in the middle.

Further events that have been scheduled include David Blunkett's evening of Dog Training, a cookery demonstration by Terry Wogan, and Jonathan Ross performing a one man version of Fawlty Towers.
