Zogcast!

0:00:040:00:06

Calling Zog, calling Zog...

0:00:060:00:07

Zoooooog!

0:00:070:00:09

Today, we talk about poetry.

0:00:090:00:10

Ooh, I love poetry!

0:00:100:00:12

I'm going to get myself a wheel, slap on some clay

0:00:120:00:14

and make myself a jug.

0:00:140:00:15

Poetry, not pottery.

0:00:150:00:17

So, how do you become a poet?

0:00:170:00:18

All you've got to do is write words down. They don't even have to rhyme.

0:00:180:00:21

Ooh, I've got something I'd like to write a poem about.

0:00:210:00:23

-My favourite fruit.

-Go for it, bro.

0:00:230:00:25

The Orange, by Zig.

0:00:250:00:27

My favourite fruit is the orange

0:00:270:00:29

It really is rather borange

0:00:290:00:30

Once I eat its norange

0:00:300:00:31

I eat its fruity slorange.

0:00:310:00:33

Er, Zig, really great job, except they probably should be real words.

0:00:330:00:37

Oh, sorrange!

0:00:370:00:38

ZIG BEATBOXES

0:00:380:00:39

A poem, you see, is like painting with words

0:00:390:00:41

'Bout anything at all, whatever occurs

0:00:410:00:43

Some have rhythm, others rhyme

0:00:430:00:45

But here's what true every time

0:00:450:00:47

Just read a poem, give it a go

0:00:470:00:49

Or write one yourself, you just never know

0:00:490:00:52

Wordsworth, Bronte, Muhammad Ali

0:00:520:00:54

Michelle, Eldon, James and Riley.

0:00:540:00:56

Zig, Zig, Zig, Zig, they're not poets.

0:00:560:00:59

They're the cast of The Next Step.

0:00:590:01:00

Ah, but they make poetry with their feet.

0:01:000:01:02

Hmm, true dat.

0:01:020:01:04

Orange, you're so...orangey...

0:01:040:01:08

Zig, don't you have another favourite fruit

0:01:080:01:09

you could read a poem about?

0:01:090:01:11

I'd like to say yes, but no.

0:01:110:01:13

So, who's this Shakespeare guy?

0:01:130:01:14

Ah, yes, Shakespeare!

0:01:140:01:16

Of course, that's not his real name.

0:01:160:01:18

They called him that because his first job was to shake spears.

0:01:180:01:21

What kind of job is shaking spears?

0:01:210:01:22

It was before lollipop ladies were invented.

0:01:220:01:24

He used to stand outside ye olde school and wave his spear

0:01:240:01:28

at the horse and cart.

0:01:280:01:29

"Oi, you! Stop! Let these children cross ye road safely."

0:01:290:01:33

And then, one day, he was so bored he said,

0:01:330:01:34

"I'm tired of shaking spears. I've been doing this job for years."

0:01:340:01:37

"Ooh," he thought to himself,

0:01:370:01:38

"I like the way those words sounded together.

0:01:380:01:41

"Now I'd like to spend my time writing words that rhyme."

0:01:410:01:43

And THAT'S how poems were invented.

0:01:430:01:45

Wow! Really?

0:01:450:01:46

Yeah! Probably. I mean, sort of, I guess...

0:01:460:01:49

-I wandered lonely...

-Yes?

0:01:490:01:50

-I wandered lonely...

-Yes?

0:01:500:01:52

I wandered lonely as an orange.

0:01:520:01:54

Argh!

0:01:540:01:55

So, there you have it, all you need to know about poetry!

0:01:550:01:58
