OFF THE RECORD

Posted by Admin on Sunday, 2nd March 2008, 00:00

I’m playing records – your request:
why don’t you give your tongue a rest?
The moment stylus touches disc,
your thoughts to conversation whisk
and like a shuttle dart afar,
from colds to cuckolds – clothes to car.
You love Swan Lake? I doubt if you
know pliès from Miss Fonteyn’s shoe.
You dote on Verdi? If that’s so,
then let the singers have a go.
Instead, you wear my patience thin,
recounting menus, parties, gin.
No time for Sutherland’s bel canto?
Oh, go and watch your TV panto!
