It has not yet shaken New Hampshire to its very core, but Gov. Chris Sununu’s choice for the next state poet laureate has apparently left some people sputtering in blank verse.

Webster resident Dan Moran (we love the name) is a poet of some note, but his name was not the one officially recommended by the Poetry Society of New Hampshire. It was not even on the society’s “short list,’’ we are told.

Such action is unprecedented. Who does this Sununu (a name that belongs in a haiku) think he is? Why, next thing you know, elected officials will be ignoring the approved lists of judicial nominees from bar associations.
