A letter to the Queen.
To the Queen,
Have you seen?
The turkeys running
Through the stream?
Have you heard their wretched screeches?
Perhaps they’re not fond of your speeches.
We are though Ma’am don’t worry about that.
We are very fond indeed.
But we also like the turkeys.
Yes I am aware that you can kill a swan,
No it’s not that I think it’s wrong,
It’s just… well,
Can I kill one?
Surely you can’t hang me for…
Oh you can.
Is Pete Townsend good at pictures?
Quartered? Is that something to do with American football?
Quite right too. I wouldn’t have my hanging any other way.
Still ‘life’ and balls. Lots of balls.
