Dad reads this blog so I’d better not say too much. 😉
String is a very important thing
Rope is thicker
But string is quicker
This is a poem by Spike Milligan. Dad is a Spike Milligan fan. Actually, I’m a bit of a fan too. Spike wrote the first book that ever transported me to another world – “Badjelly the Witch“. I remember reading it while my dad drove us somewhere in the car. I was so engrossed in the book that I forgot we were in the car, and when I looked up I got a terrible shock from the mental dislocation. It was amazing!
Here is my favourite Milligan poem:
There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in
But they’re ever so small
That’s why the rain is thin.
By the way, Spike’s own epitaph is written on his headstone in Gaelic. It translates to “I told you I was ill.”
