Corpoetics is a collection of ‘found’ poetry from the websites of well-known brands and corporations. Nick has visited various company websites, found the closest thing to a Corporate Overview, and then set about rearranging the words into poetry.


I am strong.
I am vibrant.
I am committed to a vision.

I am tremendous.
I am quality.
I will lead people to excellence.

I am delighted.
I am respected.
I am very greatly valued.

What am I?
I am the best.

Pot Noodle

The boy that amazed you.
The date that got you.
The hands that shared you.
The tears that burst you.

The wonder you shared –
now the public eat it,
using spoons, forks, hands.

Scottish Widows

Here in an Edinburgh coffee house,
their futures became history.
Meet the latest widow.


You’ve got that dreamy look on your face.
You want to career down a mountainside

in a perspex ball: shake up the days,
dazzle the world with your escapades.

You wake up here, in a shabby career,
in a perspex ball, not travelling at all.
