Q

I join the queue
We move up nicely.

I ask the lady in front
What are we queuing for.
'To join another queue,'
She explains.

'How pointless,' I say,
'I'm leaving.' She points
To another long queue.
'Then you must get in line.'

I join the queue.
We move up nicely.

    Hi Amy hope this helps

    Q What book/poem/author/poet has been most influential upon your writing?

    Roger McGough: 'Many poets and writers - Dylan Thomas, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Adrian Mitchell, E.E. Cummings; threads from many poets.'

    Its a bit generalised for all his poems though

    This poem is used as a stimulus for the AQA A level group choreography exam. Does anyone know where McGough got his inspiration for this poem or if he has said anything about this poem?
