New Poet: Sir John Betjeman

So he's not exactly new, but he's new to us! Enjoy this pretty famous poem while we go hunting for more.


Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough!
It isn't fit for humans now,
There isn't grass to graze a cow.
Swarm over, Death!

The rest is here. Does anyone know what this poetic form is called?
