John  Brownlow

“Ted: A fucking good poem is a weapon.

It's-- and not like a--
a popgun or something.

- It's a bomb.
It's like a bloody big bomb.

Sylvia: That’s why they make children
learn them in school.

They don't want them messing about
with them on their own.

I mean, just imagine
if a sonnet went off accidentally.

Boom.”
