Ode To The Man Who Claimed He Could Look After My Wife Better Than I

His first name is David, shortened to Dave.
The headstone on Sylvia Plath’s grave
Bears his family name, and I sympathise
With those crazed idolaters who excise
“Hughes” as fast as it’s re-engraved,
Their bowdlerism reactively slaved
To the craftsman’s restoring work,
But to them I say “Stet! – Dave Hughes is a jerk,
Let it stand, it’s to his shame.”

The kids are at that magical age when they believe everything we say. I stop them from eating too much salt by telling them that Michael Jackson ate too much salt, and that is why he died; stop them from being careless with their gloves by saying that as MJ moonwalked to "Billy Jean" he wore only one glove because he had lost the other (if he was lucky someone might have put it on one of the railings surrounding his local park).

The coterie behind Goblio for rag week 1979 got their education for free and later missed an opportunity to give Brenda from Sky Star Search her own series.
