God save our Ted

April 26th

Today’s poetic task, to use and existing poem or song and write a parody poem of our own. In keeping with the British TV zeitgeist, I took the national anthem and wrote a tribute to Line of Duty.  


Plod save Inspector Ted,

From an ignoble death,

“God give me strength”.

But is Mister Hastings,

In league with OCG,

Or a red herring?

Line of Duty.


Will Kate be shot down dead?

Or take straight Steve to bed?

Maybe she’s bent!

Ted says “Mother of God”,

When he chases bad plod,

Everyone seems at odds.

“God give me strength!”
