In case you haven't been to one of his shows, Tim Key – poet, comedian, denim jumpsuit-wearer and Alan Partridge sidekick – reads aloud his brilliantly silly poems written on the backs of playing cards. Key very kindly let us borrow a bunch of his poetical cards to make this gallery. So flick through the slideshow below to read poems about sparrows, hanky panky, Barack Obama and more. Quick warning: most of the playing cards happen to be pornographic (don't worry, we've covered up the naughty bits).
