PM’s diary

I was talking to the Palace
when all the lights went out,
then the cat jumped in the fish tank
— I was wrestling with a trout —
then a bomb went off in Parkway
and rebels stormed Saigon,
in Pakistan a plane was lost
returning from Hong Kong.
An earthquake struck the Isle of Man,
a bishop died in Rome,
a tiger leaped a 12-foot fence
and started heading home,
then the mayor of Casablanca
was found dead inside a sack.
I said ‘Sorry Lizzie, kinda busy
— can I call you back?’
