 ramblings and things


A strange world in which we live;
I may be old fashioned of course,
But sometimes I think
We've placed cart afore the horse

An announcement in The Times
There for all to see
Having been so carefully checked
To ensure it was PC:
QUANGO's, Health and Safety
Idealists, theoreticians,
People in the know,
Various grades of Politician,
Professional professionals,
The no smoking lobby,
And even some who just
Attend these things as a hobby,
Gathered at the graveside:
For having failed the test
In this so precise Nanny society
Common Sense was laid to rest.

It has been said before
In a statement oh so pithy,
That a Camel was a Horse
Designed by a committee.
