On further reflection, this is perfect spontaneous public poetry.
So this drunken fisherman ripped off his sou’wester and dropped the bag containing his dinner of a stuffed lamb chop and grabbed the Duke by the lapels of his tuxedo, shaking loose his Derby pin. Fortunately, Lady Harry was coming out of Simpson’s Lane when she spied the bruhaha and took out the I Phone she was carrying in a Black
Helix cash box.
UNfortunately, the IRA man in the knit balaclava who had been following her on his bicycle (he hadn’t been able to find his car key since he visited the Frisbee course)…
ok I’m out of gas…take it away Tony
