"And I think the same was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar'

Camilla and the kids have gone to London roving,
to see Alice, the Dormous, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare.
And in place of champagne popping, I can hear the fiendish timeliness

Catching a 15 euro Ryanair return would have knocked Banjo for six,

And, shortly an IATA promo video of me in the classroom in Switzerland.

Composed by David, after cooking ravioli in the kettle in the Ram*da because his HR department can't afford 56AUD a night for food, let alone the hotel, plane tickets, annual leave (did I mention my friends in the Irish Aviation Authority wouldn't even give me days off to attend - speaking of answers coming directed in a writing unexpected). But they changed their reasons three times in the process. [and now for the PUNCH line..............]
But next December we'll go a-droving "a party pooper" and eat Pavlova good-oh!!!!
Not my best work.
