Like a limerick, an ‘Eoin’s Poem’ is a type of poem with it’s own distinct structure – in this case 4 stanzas of 4 lines with AAAA rhyming structure. The basic nature of this structure means that they’re difficult to take entirely seriously and it’s possibly for that reason that I have found myself strangely drawn to writing them.
Credit for them goes to Eoin McDevitt of the Second Captains podcast.
Anyway here’s my Eoin’s Poem for you all on the last day of 2018. Happy New Year.
