Extract of the Moment: Tom Duckworth

This is taken from Happy Fat Children and Protein Enhancers, a collection of poems based on anagrams and rearrangements of words.

Cut-out hero

The queen stares! Across checked land,
Religious service rechristened at her side

Castles, limbs of stone, advance
soon shatter to ruled ruins

Sixteen hooves fight,
clash, rider spirit fiery

Royalty rooting sacrifice,
cop out & plot over coco

This is an anagram of the following:

Heavitree road police station
Exeter Vehicle access
Do not secure bicycles to the post in front of this door access required at all times
Access strictly for residence & visitors only
No through route parking for unauthorised vehicles
